Abstract:
The experiment was conducted in the field with and without treatments of two concentrations of plant growth hormones, were treated daily on the germinating seeds of Phaseolus vulgaris & Abelmoschus esculentus respectively. After seven days, the germinating seeds were counted till to ten days and observed germination, survival and mortality percentages of the both crops. The efficiency of plant growth hormones such as IAA & GA3 in their physiological ranges were studied and compared to the control. In the control condition, observed seed germination, survival and mortality percentages of the Phaseolus vulgaris. When growth regulator was given to the germinating seeds, the germination, survival and mortality percentages were amounted with IAA (10-2 M) concentration, but best germination percentage, survival and less mortality percentages were recorded with the concentration of IAA (10-3M) as compared to control. In control condition of Abelmoschus esculentus, observed seed germination, survival and mortality percentage. When the plant hormone concentration was given to the germinating seeds, the germination, survival & mortality percentages were amounted with the GA3 (10-2) concentration, but best germination percentage, survival and less mortality percentage were recorded with the concentration of GA3 (10-3) as compared to the control.
