Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during the Rabi season in Pisumsativumin 2014-15 at Seed Science and Technology Laborotry, Department of Seed Science and Technology, VCSG UUHF, Ranichauri Campus, TehriGarhwal, Uttarakhand. It comprised 16 genotypes of vegetable pea (Pisumsativum L.) including released commercial cultivars and elite lines developed from different Institutes of India. The seed samples of each genotype were subjected to laboratory testing in Complete Randomised Design for 100 seed weight, first count, standard germination, root length, shoot length, seedling length, seedling fresh weight, seedling dry weight, vigour index-I and vigour index-IIwith view to find out relationship of seed viability and seedling vigour parameters with field performance of the genotypes. The genotype Pea-1001 registered maximum value for first count (73.66%), standard germination (92.33%), seedling fresh weight (4.07 g), seedling dry weight (0.92 g), vigour index-II (87.09).Correlation studies showed positively and significantly correlation with standard germination (0.807), seed vigour index-II (0.654), seedling fresh weight (0.60) and seedling dry weight (0.59). Highly significant and positive correlation was observed with seed vigour index-II (0.392) and seedling dry weight (0.39). It is evident that prior estimation of standard germination, seedling dry weight and seedling vigour index-II of the seed lot in any genotype could be used to predict the yield potentiality of that genotype in open field conditions and the genotypes with higher values for these seed traits could be assumed to give higher pod and seed yield.
