Abstract:

The experiment was conducted to standardize the best treatment of electro-magnetic and botanicals for Tomato (PKM-1). Three methods of priming viz- magnetopriming, electropriming, and organicpriming with control (Unprimed) were evaluated by screening different duration (15 minutes, 30 minutes, 6 hours and 12 hours) and different concentrations viz., T0-Unprimed (Control), magneto-priming - T1-200 gauss @ 15 minutes, T2-200 gauss @ 30 minutes, T3-400 gauss @ 15 minutes, T4-400 gauss @ 30 minutes, electro-priming- T5- 100 mA @ 15 minutes, T6- 100 mA @ 30 minutes, T7- 200 mA @ 15 minutes, T8- 200 mA @ 30 minutes, organic-priming- T9- Neem Leaf Extract (10%) @ 6 hours, T10- Neem Leaf Extract (10%) @ 12 hours, T11- Tulsi Leaf Extract (10%) @ 6 hours, T12- Tulsi Leaf Extract (10%) @ 12 hours. The study revealed that the seed treatment with magneto-priming (T4-400 gauss @ 30 minutes), (T3-400 gauss @ 15 minutes) and organic-priming (T10- Neem leaf extract (10%) @ 12 hours) recorded better performance in maximum seed quality parameters as compared to other treatments and control on the basis of lab studies.
