Abstract:

The study entitled Germination response of Pinus Kesiya in different containers and potting media in Northeast area of Nagaland was carried out during the year 2021- 2022 to see the performance of different types of containers and the most suitable soil media for growth and establishment of Pinus kesiya located at Kohima district with the average annual rainfall of 1660.8 mm. The effects of container types and growth medium on the seedling growth and root morphology of Pinus kesiya were investigated by using a completely randomized block experimental design. There were six treatments replicated three times with 10 seeds per replication. Both container type and growth medium significantly affected the growth, biomass, and root morphological indexes of Pinus kesiya seedlings, but container type had a greater effect on the seedling quality of Pinus Kesiya than the growth medium. Among the different containerized raised seedlings, the root trainer (150 cc) raised seedlings produced healthier plant growth as compared to the seedlings raised in Polybags (6×7). Potting mixture of soil: sand: FYM in the ratio of 1:1:1 (M2) showed the best response in root trainers (C1) whereas for polybags (C2) potting mixture of soil: sand: Vermicompost in the ratio 1:1:1 (M5). And in all parameters the minimum was recorded in M3(Soil + FYM+ Neem Cake) and M6 (Neem cake + Sand+ Vermicompost) for root trainers and polybags.
