The parameters measure were seed height, seed diameter, and number of leaves observed once every month for three months,leaf area, root length, root dry weight, shoot dry weight, total dry weight observed after at the end of the experiment. The obtained data were analyzed by Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and continued with Least Significant Different (SLD).
