Simulated acid rain affected seed vigour, relative seed vigour percentage, seeding survival percentage and other related attributes in two cultivars of Lens culinaris. Treatment consist of four acidic levels in simulated acid rain pH 2.5,3.5,4.5 and 5.5.Effect of different pH of acid rain on germination, seed germination, seed germination action index, mean germination frequency etc. on cvs. malika and L-830 of Lens culinaris was studied. High acidic levels were found to be inhibitory for survival of seeding and adversely affected other attributes.
