The objectives of this research was to determinate effect of various scarification treatments on seed quality and seed germination rate of Indigofera sp. This study used a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 5 treatments and 3 replications, and continued with Least Significant Difference Test (LSD). The treatments in this study were: R0 (without scarification treatment), R1 (soaked in water for 24 hours), R2 (soaked in 60° C hot water for 10 minutes), R3 (the seed hull scraped using sandpaper), R4 (soaked in 1% H2SO4 solution for 30 minutes). The results showed that soaking the seeds in water for 24 hours gave a significant effect (P < 0,05) on germination. It was the best treatment for seed germination rate with an average value of 74% germination rate. Treatment of scrapping the seed hull using sandpaper caused the highest number of abnormal sprouts, germination failed seed, and seed pests.
