Ripal Panchal* and Riddhi Prajapati
Mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) is a short-season summer growing grain legume grown as dry land crop in the center and northeast of Asia. Among the pulse crops, mungbean has a special importance of intensive crop production due to its short growth period  Mungbean is a drought tolerant and crop and performance well under condition of law soil moisture. Gibberellic Acid (GA3) is the most important growth regulator, which breaks seed dormancy, promotes germination, intermodal length, hypocotyls growth and cell division in cambial zone and increases the size of leaves. The experiment was conducted at M.N College Visnagar, which is situated 23042 North latitude and 72033 East longitude. Major Economi of the taluka comes from agriculture sector. The study was conducted in the laboratory conditions, to determine the effects of Gibberellic acid on germination of green gram Vigna radiata. From the study it was found Gibberellic acid is effect on Fast seed germination and stem elongation.
Keywords: Gibberellic acid, seed germination, stem elongation, Vigna radiata.
