A Seed germination study was conducted at Department of Agronomy, Annamalai University, India during February 2019 to study the effect of silixol plus on germination and growth of rice. The treatments comprised of five levels of silixol plus viz., 0 ppm (T1), 1ppm (T2), 2 ppm (T3), 3 ppm (T4) and 4 ppm (T5) and were laid out by adopting randomized block design (RBD) with four replications. Among the different levels, seed soaking with Silixol plus @ 2 ppm recorded higher values for seed germination percentage on 3, 5, 7 and 9th day after sowing.
