Abstract: In a field experiment conducted in Mondouri, West Bengal, India, during 2009, seeds of cashew (cv. Jhargram-1) had been soaked for 24 h in 2 or 4% panchagavya, 20 or 40 ppm GA3 [gibberellic acid], 20 or 40 ppm IBA, or cow dung before sowing. The growth regulators had significant effects on germination and growth. GA3 at 40 ppm resulted in the lowest number of days to germination (9.0), highest germination percentage (82.0%), and greatest plant height (23.77 cm), number of leaves per plant (11.16), leaf length (12.76 cm) and leaf area (29.39 cm2)..
