Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to study the effect of seed hardening with micronutrients and botanicals on seed quality parameters in chickpea. The chickpea cv. PUSA-362 was imposed to various seed hardening treatments viz., Neem leaf extract @ 5%, Tulsi leaf extract@ 5%, Papayaleaf extract@ 5%,Moringaleaf extract @ 5%, CaCl2@ 1% and 2%, KCl @ 1% and 2%, KNo3 @ 1% and 2%, KH2PO4 @ 1% and 2%. The above treated seeds along with control for their seed quality parameters. The study revealed that seed hardening with KH2PO4 @ 2% in micronutrients and Neem leaf extract @ 5% in botanicals showed better performance in maximum seed quality parameters as compared to other treatments and control on the basis of lab studies.
