Germination of Neem (azadirachta indica)and Honge (pongamia pinnata)seeds was made by irrigated with distillery spentwash of different concentration. The spentwash i.e. primary treated spentwash [PTSW] 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3 spentwash were analyzed for their plant nutrients such nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and physical and chemical characteristics. Experimental soil was tested for its physico-chemical parameters. Neem and Honge seeds were sowed in the prepared land and irrigated with raw water (RW), 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3 spent wash. The nature of germination and growth of seeds was studied. It was found that, the germination as well as growth was good (100%) in1:3 SW irrigation, while very poor in 1:1 SW (25%), moderate in 1:2 SW (80%) and 95% in RW irrigation.
