chemicals like cytokinins, auxins, gibberellins, abscisic acid, ethylene, and hydrogen peroxide promote seed germination. Consequently, unsaturated lactones, gases, aldehydes, organic acids, aromatic acids, amino acids, and alkaloids inhibit seed germination. Wheat is a protein consumed by 98% of the human population. The plant belongs to the cereal family, which is affected by environmental factors. Previous surveys revealed that wheat seed is susceptible to insect attack (Gentile and Trematerra 860). As a result, over two hundred insect species attack wheat seeds. However, the commercial production of wheat provides food, employment, and money to peasants and agricultural farmers. In an attempt to improve plant yield, researchers conducted studies to examine the influence of plant extracts on seed germination. The survey revealed that most plant extracts stimulated seed development. The research result was consistent with several findings in agricultural articles. Consequently, studies on pest control evaluated the influence of chemicals on seed germination.
