How to sow the seeds?

Nikhil

Whole Coriander seeds will not germinate and hence the seeds are split open into halves before sowing.

Soak the seeds in water for 6-10 hours for better germination. Treat the coriander seeds with Azospirillum
& Trichoderma

Intelligent question .Hard seed coat reduce the germination by 50 - 70 % …so soak the seeds in water for 24 hours and then treat it in 100 PPM of Gibberellic acid ( GA 3 ) or NAA for 2 hours before sowing …It ensure good germination and crop cover

Spacing is 30 cms row to row and 10 cms seed to seed in a bed size of 3.5 M length and 1.5 M width dimension

loam soil spacing is 30 cms by 10 cms and other soil - 40 cms by 10 cms spacing - row to row and seed to seed
