Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during kharif 2018-19 at seed farm, College of Agriculture, Vijayapur to study the effect of seed priming and seed treatment on seed yield and quality in foxtail millet. The field experiment consisted of two factors. Factor I Seed priming Control (P1),Hydro priming for 8hr (P2),VIGRO-S (seaweed extract) (P3),2 per cent CaCl2(P4),20 per cent Pseudomonas(P5). Factor II seed treatment with insecticides with Thiamethoxam 25 WG @ 2g/kg (S1),Imidacloprid 70 WG @ 5g/kg (S2),Chlothidin 50 WG @2g/kg (S3),Acetamiprid 20 SP @ 2g/kg (S4) replicated three times and laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design. The results of the investigation indicated that significantly higher field emergence (93.4, 91.3, respectively), shoot fly incidence (4.94, 4.55, respectively) recorded due to seed priming with CaCl2and seed treatment. Significantly higher growth parameters such as plant height and SPAD value (92.2,26.75) at 90 DAS and dry matter (35.29) produced due to seed treatment with thiamethaxam 25 WG @ 2g/kg of seeds. The higher seed yield (19.47 q/ha), seed germination (95.75 %) was maximum with seed priming with 2 per cent CaCl2 followed by hydro priming for 8 hrs with better seed quality. The seed yield and quality parameters were varied significantly with the seed treatments. The higher seed yield (18.23 q/ha), seed germination (93.53 %) was obtained with seed treatment of Thiamethaxam 25 WG @ 2g/kg of seeds followed by Imidacloprid 70 WG @ 5g/kg of seeds. The interaction effect due to seed priming and seed treatment did not varied significantly. However, the higher seed yield of 31.1 per cent (20.10 q/ha) obtained with seed priming of 2 % CaCl2 along with Thiamethaxam 25 WG @ 2g/kg of seeds followed by Imidacloprid 70 WG 5g/kg of seeds.
