Experimental Studies on Suitability of Greenhouse for Nursery Raising

S. Kothari, N. L. Panwar


In this communication growth response of Albizia lebbeck seedlings raised in greenhouse
conditions was assessed and compared with open field conditions. To accelerate the
germination of seeds, some soaking treatments were also given prior to sowing. Experimental
results show that the height of the 3 months old seedlings of Albizia lebbeck was 135 per cent
more inside the greenhouse as compared to open condition. The corresponding increase in
collar diameter in greenhouse was 50 per cent and dry matter content was 215 per cent.
