Comparative Study on Germination and Seedling Growth in Walnut Genotypes

Javed Rahman


Germination and seedling growth in different walnut genotypes were investigated in Randomized complete block design at Agricultural Research Institute Mingora, Swat, Pakistan in the year 2012. Three walnut genotypes one hard shelled and two thin shelled were studied in the experiment.  Both thin shelled genotypes Sanoghar-I and Sen Lasht –IV were at par with each other but excelled significantly over hard shelled genotypes in all study parameters except seedling diameter. Sanoghar-I and Sen Lasht –IV showed germination percentage (77.66% and 60.33%), seedling height (121.58 and 86.3 cm) and number of leaves (30.81 and 27.57) respectively.

Keywords: Germination, Walnut Genotypes.
