ABSTRACT
The aqueous fresh leaf extract of Rhizophora mucronata Lam. is used for germination of Triticum aestivum (Wheat) and Brassica juncea (Mustard) seeds. The seeds treated with the aqueous extract showed high percentage of germination as well as longer root and shoot length as compared to control and other commercially used biofertilizer like Sargassum treated seeds.

Key words : Biofertilizer, Longer root, Rhizophora mucronata Lam., Shoot length.
