Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to study the “Comparative study of magnetic, electric and botanical seed priming on seedling characters of Desi and kabuli Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) seeds.” at post graduate laboratory of Seed Science at Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P). The experiment comprised of nine treatments each for Desi and Kabuli variety in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with three replications. Analysis of variance showed significant difference among the priming treatments for the characters studied in the chickpea which indicates significant effect of the priming on the germination and seedling parameters of the crop. Electric priming @ 1.0 A for 60 seconds [T5] recorded significantly higher values for seedling characters, viz., shoot length, Root length, Seedling fresh weight, dry weight and Seedling vigour index-I in both Desi and Kabuli chickpea. This is found to be statistically at par with T4 (0.5A for 60 seconds) in case of Desi variety whereas, T8 (Neem leaf extract priming) is statistically at par in Kabuli variety.
