Table 2 Breaking dormancy of Leucaena leucophala seeds
Treatment| % Germination|

Rubbing on sandpaper| 0%| 0%| 0%|
Clipping| 0%| 1%| 0.5%|

The experiment has shown that by clipping the seeds perhaps germination of the seed can be attain. Rubbing the seed with sandpaper can break the dormancy as well as it can also break and kill the seed. Soaking the seeds in hot water can also break the hardness of the coat of the seed thus can also kill the developing parts of the seeds of the plant. Clipping can be considered as an effective way of breaking the dormancy of the seed thus in some unexpected ways or inaccurate work, the seeds may be damaged and may not germinate.

The results have shown that the rice seed treated with 11% moisture content have higher percent of...
