Abstract—Triticum and Rice, the two cereals are the staple food of Indians. Before green revolution, India was facing their shortage. Now India is self-sufficient. Still, there is a talk of second green revolution. In this context, it is need to boost the production of these crops to ensure sustainability. The present study is a small step in this direction. It aims at finding out the effect of cow dung/soil mixture on germination of triticum spp. (triticum) seeds. The germination of triticum seeds were studied in the soil which was mixed with cow dung in different proportions in volume wise as 1:0, 3:1, 2:1, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 0:1v(manure: soil) named S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6 and S7 (control). Obtained results showed that all the samples gave better triticum growth and improvement in germination as compared to control (0:1). Study indicated that the germination parameters like root length, shoot length, biomass etc. were increased more with appropriate mixing of organic fertilizers (cow dung) in the soil. Among the various samples, sample S6 gave the peak performance. Final results proved the prospects of using cow dung manure biochar (natural fertilizer) in respect of better germination growth of triticum.
Index Terms—cow dung, germination time, germination constant, triticum
