Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Studies on effect of pre-soaking treatments on germination, growth and success of soft wood grafting in mango (Mangifera indica L.)” was conducted under net house condition, at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Latur during 2010-2011. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design with seven treatments replicated thrice. The experiment framed was intended to assess the influence of different pre-soaking treatments on germination of mango stones and to study the influence of different pre-soaking treatments on growth of seedlings of mango under nursery condition. The experiment consists of six different pre-sowing treatments of stones viz. water soaking, cow urine, cow dung, cow urine + cow dung (1:1), GA3 @ 100 ppm, Potassium nitrate 1 per cent and a control. The results of present investigation clearly showed that, different pre-soaking treatments have got significant effect on stone germination and growth parameters of mango seedlings. The treatment of GA3 at 100 ppm required less number of days (12.53) for initiation of germination, potential germination (44.34), and gave maximum germination percentage (85.67) and recorded maximum (4.05) germination vigour index. The growth attributes like height of seedlings, number of leaves, leaf area and root were also maximum in), GA3 @ 100 ppm treatment.
