Hardwickia binata comes under the endemic biodiversity category and it is multipurpose tree species useful for agroforestry and dry land areas with medicinal, fodder, fuel, fibre, timber and manure utility / potential. It is essential to know more about its seed germination and growth. In present studies the attempts have been made to investigate seed germination and growth performance at three different places located in three different districts. The seed germination and growth performance experiments were carried out for one year on different treatments in nursery, laboratory and field for parameters viz. seed germination, seedling growth and survival rate in H. binata. The investigations revealed that seed germination and growth performance considerably varies with soil combination and locality or region. This study results may be useful in nursery and forestry management as well as conservation of H. binata.

Key words : Hardwickia binata, Germination, Growth performance, Seedlings survival.
