Abstract:

A laboratory experiment was conducted at seed science and technology, college of agriculture, Raichur during December, 2018. Aim is to study the effect of seed quality through integrated approach in prosomillet of resultant seeds. The experiment consisted of 4 priming treatment combinations viz., Control, hydropriming for 8h, biopriming with Pseudomonas fluorescens (20 %) and KH2PO4 (2%) with three levels of fertility (100 %, 125 % and 150% RDF). The seeds produced from the field experiment are evaluated in the laboratory for quality assessment. The seed quality parameters differed significantly between the treatments. Seed priming with Pseudomonas fluorescens (20 %) along with 150 % RDF recorded higher germination percentage (89.2 %), shoot length (13.02 cm), root length (11.63 cm), seedling length (24.65 cm), seedling dry weight (430 mg), seedling vigour index I and II (2198 and 38356) and electrical conductivity (0.015) were influenced significantly by Pseudomonas fluroscens (20 %) along with 150 % RDF among all the treatments.
