The chilli seeds were germinated under different colour lights. The percentage of germination was in the order red >= yellow >= green > control > blue. Energy rations of red, yellow, green, and blue lights against control were 1.13 > 1.03 > 0.92 and > 0.76. The chlorophyll ratio against the control was in the reverse order. Under pot conditions, upto 0.33% NaCl solution enhanced seed germination compared with ordinary tap water. However, the percentage of survival decreased as the concentration of salt increased
