Abstract: Research has been undertaken to find out if square pyramidal structure has any influence on the germination, radical emergence and seedling vigour in terms of germination percentage and length of fenugreek, as given in Indian scriptures and literature. Two models were used, one of them made of wood and other one made of plywood with both of them having square base. The control sample was kept in open air. Results subjected to statistical analysis indicated that there is a significant influence on the radical emergence and seedling vigour when germinated in both pyramid models. However there was no statistical significance in germination percentage.
