Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during pre kharif (summer) season of 2018 to study the effects of terminal bud and priming of seeds with different chemicals in Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) for growth, yield and seed quality parameters. The harvested seeds under different combination pinching and seed priming were studied for different seed quality parameters. The seed priming chemicals were considered in main plots and pinching of terminal buds was considered in sub plots. The individual plant performance for growth parameters, yield contributing parameters as well a seed yield plant-1 revealed that seed priming with followed by KH2PO4@200 mM followed by KH2PO4@50 mM had maximum effect on increasing seed yield. Effect of pinching and seed priming treatments revealed that germination percentage was not significantly influenced but pinching of terminal bud with seed priming (KH2PO4@100 mM) had an effective role in root length, seedling dry weight and seedling fresh weight, for increasing oil and protein content KNO3 had an important role.
