Abstract:

The experiment was conducted for overcoming the problems related to poor germination and seedling establishment of coriander seeds at post graduate Seed Testing Laboratory, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Pryagraj (U.P.) during rabi season 2018, in order to standardize the best treatment of fungicide and PGRs to Coriander (var.). Two method of pre-sowing treatment viz-fungicide and plant growth regulators with control (Unprimed) were evaluated by screening 12 hour duration and different concentrations viz.,- To- Control (untreated), T1- Captan (3 gm/kg), T2- Captan (5 gm/kg), T3- Thiram (3 gm/kg), T4- Thiram (5 gm/kg), T5- Carbendazim (3 gm/kg), T6- Carbendazim (5 gm/kg), T7- GA3 (50 ppm), T8- GA3 (100 ppm), T9- NAA (50 ppm), T10-NAA (100 ppm), T11- IAA (25 ppm), T12- IAA (50 ppm). It was found that all the priming treatment showed significance difference with the control and the highest germination per cent, seedling length, seedling fresh weight, seedling dry weight, vigour indices were observed for Gibberellic Acid (100 ppm). Highest germination was observed in Gibberellic Acid (100 ppm) and Captan (5gm/kg). Seed pre-sowing treatment, its simplicity and no requirement for expensive equipment and chemical could be used as a simple method for overcoming related to a poor germination and seedling establishment and helps in sustaining agriculture and cost effective and economic, non- toxic, eco-friendly sources.
