Abstract:

Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production is often affected due to micronutrient status in soil. Micronutrient deficiency in soil including Boron is very much prominent in India, due to prevalent environmental and soil conditions (viz., wide variation in soil pH, organic matter, salt stress, supply of micronutrients etc.) among the various methods of incorporating micronutrients into the soil system, seed treatment with seed priming and seed coating are attractive, easy cost effective and beneficial over the soil and foliar application. A field experiment was conducted with wheat (Cv. K1009) over two years (2014-15 and 2015-16) during Rabi season in an acid soil of Terai region of West Bengal. Liming material was applied to attain an optimum pH for the growth of the crop. Full dose and half dose of boron as seed treatment and soil application was applied. Combined effect of lime and B (through soil application and seed treatment) was assessed on yield of wheat. The highest yield (5.37 t ha-1) was obtained under seed treatment (T9) over soil treatment (4.7 t ha-1 at T9) after the combined effect of full dose of lime and boron with uniform application of N, P and K. The performance under seed treatment was better compare to the soil application in terms of yield of wheat.
