Abstract:

The field and laboratory experiments were conducted to know the influence of pre-sowing treatment on plant growth, seed yield and quality in kabuli chickpea Cv. MNK-1. The results revealed that highest seed quality parameters were observed in seeds primed with GA3 @ 50ppm + seed coating with Trichoderma harzianum @15g/kg while recorded better germination (97.33 %), root length (12.13 cm), shoot length (12.43 cm), SVI (2391) and less infection of Aspergillus sp (0.00) compared to untreated seeds ( 88.67 %, 11.48cm, 13.96cm, 2256, Aspergillus niger-6.00% and Aspergillus flavus-4.67 %), In the field study, highest test weight (48.46 g), number of pods/plant (18.53) were recorded in seeds primed with Gibberalic Acid @ 50 ppm + seed coating with T. harzianum @ 15 g / kg seed which is on-par with seeds treated with sprint @ 3g/kg (Carbendizium 25 %+ Mancozeb 50 %). However, the seeds treated with sprint @ 3g/kg (Carbendizium 25 %+ Mancozeb 50 %) recorded highest seed yield (22.55 q/ha) followed by Gibberalic Acid @ 50 ppm + seed coating with T. harzianum @ 15 g / kg (20.32 q/ha) due to low incidence of wilt as compared to un-primed seeds. Hence, for higher seed yield, chickpea seeds could be treated with sprint @ 3g/kg (Carbendizium 25 %+ Mancozeb 50 %).
