Abstract:

A water culture experiment was conducted with eight treatments; these were absolute control, plasma seed treatment with 2, 4, 6, 8 and 15 minutes, nanochitosan (50 ppm) and nanochitosan (50 ppm) integration with NPK mixture at G B Pant University of Agriculture & Technology, Pantnagar during rabi season year 2017-18. While pot experiments were conducted with twelve treatments; which were control with full dose of fertilizer, nanochitosan (50 ppm) treatment with full dose of fertilizer, plasma treatment with full dose of fertilizer, control with 3/4th dose of fertilizer, nanochitosan (50 ppm) treatment with 3/4th dose of fertilizer, plasma treatment with 3/4th dose of fertilizer, control with ½ dose of fertilizer, nanochitosan (50 ppm) treatment with ½ dose of fertilizer, plasma treatment with ½ dose of fertilizer, control with no fertilizer, nanochitosan (50 ppm) treatment with no fertilizer and plasma treatment with no fertilizer. Maximum root length, shoot length, root and shoot dry weight were obtained in seed treated with 6 minute plasma treatment seeds under in vitro condition, whereas pot culture morphological indices were reported higher with full dose of fertilizer along with nanochitosan (50 ppm) treatment.
