The present study was conducted with the main purpose to assess two plant extracts viz. Mentha piperita and Pongamia pinnata at 5 different concentrations viz. 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% and 100% for seed germination on green gram with Mentha piperita and black gram with Pongamia pinnata. Plants were sun dried for seven days and grounded to powder with the help of pestle and mortar. Different concentrations of plant extracts were prepared by adding required amount of distilled water. Seeds were soaked for 24 hours followed by treating with different concentrations of plant extracts for 3 hours. After seed treatment seeds were transferred to the petriplates according to standard blotting technique. The petriplates were kept at normal day light and at room temperature. Drops of water were added to the petriplates twice a day to maintain moisture content and seed germination was observed for seven days. Untreated seeds were used as control. Experiments were done in triplicates and the results obtained in this study is the mean of triplicates. After seven days mean root length, shoot length and leaf length were measured and recorded.
