Abstract:

The present experiment was conducted during Rabi 2017-18 and 2018-19 at Research Farm, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Mohanpur, Nadia, West Bengal. The design of experiment was split plot with two factor analysis comprising four concentrations of KNO3 [viz. T1-0.5% of KNO3, T2-0.25% of KNO3, T3-0.1% of KNO3, T0-hydrated seed (control)] as first factor and three durations of soaking [viz. D1-12 hours of soaking, D2-16 hours of soaking, D3-20 hours of soaking] as second factor. It was revealed that seed yield (kg ha-1) in the first and second year was highest (1061.3 kg ha-1 and 1439.2 kg ha-1) in T2D3 (0.25% of KNO3+20 hours of soaking) followed by T1D1 (0.5% of KNO3+12 hours of soaking). Hence, for production of higher seed yield, coriander seeds should be primed with 0.25% KNO3 for 20 hours or 0.5% KNO3 with 12 hours.
