Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different treatments on seed germination in jamun (Syzygium cuminii Skeels). This species is known to have short time of viable seeds. An investigation was carried out in department of Fruit Science, Kittur Rani Channamma College of horticulture, Arabhavi during year 2015-16. Six treatments viz., T1- Poly bag (300 gauges thick), T2- Poly bag + Charcoal powder, T3- Poly bag + Carbendazim, T4- Poly bag + Saw dust, T5- Poly bag + Trichoderma harzianum and T6- Control (Paper bag) were used for evaluating the germination. Germination index was recorded highest in Trichoderma harzianum + Poly bag and seeds of Poly bag, compared to other treatments while, the untreated seeds recorded the least germination index. Vegetative parameters like seedling height and number of leaves was significantly more in Trichoderma harzianum + Poly bag treated seeds at 60 and 75 days of sowing (DAS). Prolonging the viability of seeds for more days would facilitate the availability of seeds for multiplication and also use by local farmers throughout the year.
