Abstract:

The experiment was conducted in Post Graduate Seed Testing Laboratory, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.) during Rabi season 2018, in order to find out the best priming method for chickpea (Kabuli). For different organic and inorganic viz.., T0-Untreated (control), T1-DH2O-(6hrs), T2- PEG-5%(6hrs), T3- PEG-10% (6hrs), T4- PEG-10% (6hrs), T5- NaCl-5% (6hrs), T6-NaCl-7% (6hrs), T7-NaCl-9% (6hrs), T8- CaCl2-1% (6hrs), T9- CaCl2-2% (6hrs), T10- Neem Leaf Extract-5% (6hrs) and T11- Tulsi Leaf Extract-5%(6hrs) were taken the seeds were hydrated for their respective time duration and then dried for 6hrs in shade. It was found that, among all these priming treatments showed significance difference was observed with the control while highest germination percentage, Field emergence, Days to 50% flowering, Days to 50% maturity, Number of primary branches, Number of pods per plant, Pod weight(g), Seed yield per plant(g), Biological yield, Harvesting index and seedling character parameters viz.., Germination percentage (%), Root length (cm), Shoot length (cm), Seedling length (cm), Seedling fresh weight (gm), Seedling dry weight (gm), Vigour index-I, Vigour index –II were observed for seeds treated with PEG15(6hrs) Plant height showed non-significant difference with the control. This study helps to improve the seedling character, growth and seed yield with the help of seed priming treatments which are effective, economic, non-toxic and eco-friendly sources.
