Abstract:

Present investigation was carried out in the Department of Seed Science and Technology, University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur, Karnataka during kharif 2016 and 2017. Seeds were extracted from red dried harvested fruit and well dried chilli hybrid seeds were subjected to processing by using five different bottom screen aperture size viz., 0.90 mm oblong, 0.80 mm oblong, 1.80 mm round, 2.00 mm round and 2.10 mm round. The observations on seed recovery percentage, germination, seedling length, seedling vigour index were recorded. The screen aperture size 0.80 mm oblong recorded maximum seed recovery and 2.10 mm recorded maximum per cent germination and other seed quality parameters. Also significantly on par values of recovery per cent and other seed quality parameters with the highest values was recorded in 2.00 mm round sieve size and it was higher than as prescribed by Indian Minimum Seed Certification Standards. Thus, the bottom screen aperture size of 2.00 mm round can be recommended for processing the seeds of newly released CMS based chilli hybrid UARChH42 (JCH42)
