Abstract:

The studies were carried out with greengram var CO8 seeds to determine the effect of biopriming on germination and vigour of seeds. Seeds of greengram were primed with water and liquid formulation of rhizobacteria, phosphobacteria and Pseudomonas with different concentrations viz., 1%, 2% and 5% for 3hours. Unprimed seeds served as the control. In this study, biopriming with rhizobium at 5% recorded the highest in germination (%), seedling length and vigour index values. Biopriming of seeds performed better than hydropriming with enhanced rate of germination and vigour of the seedlings.
