Germination is a process by which the embryo in the seed becomes activated and begins to grow into a new seedling. Therefore, a laboratory experiment was conducted at Hawassa University College of Agriculture in2019. The objectives of the study were to test germination and determine seed rates on pulse crops. The experiment was laid out in complete randomized design (CRD) with three replications having five pulse crop varieties (Broad bean, cow pea, haricot bean, soya bean, and mung bean). The results showed that the highest germination percentage (99.3%) were recorded from Broad bean and cow pea and the other three crop varieties attained more than 97% of germination. On the other hand, seed rates of 102kg/ha,24kg/ha,50.5kg/ha, 43.5kg/ha and 10kg/ha for Broad bean, Cow pea, Haricot bean, Soya bean, and Mung bean were recommended respectively.
