The seeds of Chironji (Buchanania lanzan Spreng.) were treated with H2SO4 (5 percent), Mechanical scarification, GA3 (200 and 300 ppm), KNO3 (1 and 2 per cent), Thiourea (1 per cent), Biomix (50 g per kg seed), Cow urine (5 per cent) Cow dung slurry (5 per cent) and soaking in distilled water as control for 24 hours. The maximum seedling height (6.35, 15.21, and 36.78 cm), seedling diameter (0.21, 0.35 and 0.45 cm) and number of leaves per plant (4.90, 10.22, and 14.63 cm) was found in seeds treated with GA3 200 ppm treatment at 60,120 and180 DAS respectively. Similarly, maximum leaf area (48.47 cm2) was also found in seeds treated with GA3 200 ppm treatment at 180 DAS. Maximum fresh weight of shoot and root (14.33 g and 8.22 g respectively), dry weight of shoot and root (8.10 g and 4.25 g respectively) and total biomass (12.83 g) was also noticed in seeds subjected to GA3 200 ppm treatment at the end of the experiment (180 DAS). Pre sowing treatment like GA3 200 ppm and mechanical scarification found equally better on growth and biomass parameters of Chironji seedlings.
