Abstract—Celosia argentea L. is an herbaceous annual weed found in all semi arid crop plant fields of Andhra Pradesh. To establish seed germination strategies, spermosphere studies on this weed plant have been carried out. When these seeds were subjected for germination in laboratory conditions, the seeds germinated at pH 0.35 acidic pH of the medium. This observation led to the spermosphere microbial population estimation by standard methods. The microbes observed were Aspergillusniger , Penicilliumnotatum , Fusarium solani, Bacillus subtilis. When these microbes were grown individually in liquid media, the pH of the culture media was in the range of 5.0 ¨C 6.9 (acidic pH). This showed that in natural conditions was these microbes will help by lowering the soil solution pH and the weed seed germination possible effectively.

Index Terms—Celosia argentea L ., Dormancy, Seed germination, Spermosphere
