|Abstract: ||Annona squamosa were sown fresh, after drying in the sun and air-drying under shade. It was found that simple seed treatment likeair-drying (under shade) and sun-drying for some days improves seed germination and seedling growth than freshly sown seeds. Air-drying under shade for one day and three days gave better germination in terms of numbers than sun-drying for one day and three days respectively. Significant differences were recorded in plant girth and leaf number amongst the treatments. Air-drying and sun-drying had larger plant girth and leaf number than the freshly sown. Shoot growth and canopy development did not show any differences amongst the treatments.|
