The study was conducted to assess the seed germination and seedling growth of Mango (Mangifera indica L.) as affected by different concentrations of wood vinegar.
The study was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with five (5) treatments, three (3) replications, and ten (10) samples per replication. The treatments are the following: Treatment 1 (no wood vinegar application), Treatment 2 (2% of wood vinegar), Treatment 3 (1% of wood vinegar), Treatment 4 (0.67% of wood vinegar), and Treatment 5 (0.5% of wood vinegar).
The result showed that mango applied with Treatment 3 were the fastest to germinate, Treatment 2 produced the tallest seedlings. There was no significant difference in the stem diameter, number of true leaves, days of true leaves, number of seedlings per seed, length of longest roots, the diameter of longest roots, and the number of secondary roots as the analysis of variance the said parameters revealed.Based on the study, the application of 1% of wood vinegar can be implemented to fasten plant germination, and also 2% of wood vinegar can be used to increase plant growth in a short period.Furthermore, studies on applying different concentrations of wood vinegar and lengthening the span of the study can be designed for future research.
