The present studies summarize the effect of different treatments on seed germination of plant species suffer from germination. The seeds show dormancy, low germination percentage and longer time taken to germinate. The seeds given different treatments such as dewinged pod, soaking in water for 24h, 48h, 72h and Acid scarification of pods with wing were scarified with conc. H2SO4 for 6 and 8 minutes. It is evident from the observation that the pod given soaking in water 48h treatment showed better germination percentage as compared to acid scarification.
