Abstract:

The present study were carried out in the Laboratory and Field Experimentation Centre of Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.) during Rabi season 2015-16 and 2016-17 entitled Effect of different priming methods and durations for Kabuli Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) seeds in order to effect of different priming treatment and durations on growth, field emergence yield and yield components of the stored chickpea seeds (Cicer kabulium L.), this experiment was conducted by randomized block design (RBD) design with three replications viz., T0-Control (without dry any treatment), T1-Hydro priming (HP) with distilled water 12 hrs,T2-Osmopriming with poly ethylene glycol PEG 6000 (0.5 Mega Pascal) for 8 hrs, T3-Osmopriming with poly ethylene glycol PEG 6000 (0.5 Mega Pascal) for 10 hrs, T4-Osmopriming with poly ethylene glycol PEG 6000 (0.5 Mega Pascal) for 12 hrs, T5-Halopriming with NaCl (9%) for 8hrs, T6-Halopriming with NaCl (9%) for 10 hrs, T7-Halopriming with NaCl (9%) for 12 hrs, T8-Magnetic priming (50 Mili Tesla for 5minutes), T9-Magnetic priming (75MiliTesla for 5minutes), T10-Electric priming (0.5 Ampere for 5 minutes) and T11-Electric priming (1.0 Ampere for 5 minutes). It was found that all the priming methods showed significance difference with the control and the highest Field emergence (%), Days to 50% flowering, Plant height (cm), Number of primary branches per plant, Days to maturity, Number of pods/plant, Number of seeds/pod, 100- seed weight (g), Biological yield (g), Harvest index (%), Yield per plant (gm) and Seed yield per hectare (q/ha). The results showed that the germination and subsequent morphological parameters are statistically significant in Chickpea (Kabuli) seeds treated with Poly ethylene glycol 6000 [0.5%] for 8 hours duration when compared with other treatments and untreated ones. This study showed that seed priming could improve some growth and yield parameters in kabuli chickpea seed priming, its simplicity no requirements for extensive equipment and chemicals could be used method for overcoming problems related to a poor germination and seedling character, growth and vigour and with the help of seed priming treatments which are cost effective, economic, non-toxic and from eco-friendly sources.
