Abstract:

An experiment entitled “Effect of priming on seed characters, disease incidence & yield in French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)” was conducted during Rabi 2018-19 in the Vegetable Research field, Department of Vegetable Science, College of Agriculture, Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar. The trial was conducted in Randomized Block Design with three replications and ten treatments. The treatments were T1 (Hydro priming), T2 (GA3 50 ppm),T3 (KCl 2%),T4 (Sodium Molybdate 500 ppm) ,T5 (Vitavax 2g/kg) , T6 (Pseudomonas fluorescens 10%), T7 (Trichoderma viride 10%), T8 (GA3 50 ppm+ T.viride 10%), T9 (Sodium Molybdate 500 ppm +Pseudomonas fluorescens 10%), T10 (Control). The seeds of French bean variety Harsha were taken and different priming treatments were done in the laboratory followed by growing the crop in the field as per recommended package of practices. . The number of pods per plant was highest in T3 (32.40) and lowest in T10 (20.2) whereas the length of pod was highest in T2 (13.7) and was lowest in T10 (11.9). Number of seeds per pod was highest in T3 (5.44) followed by T8 & T2 (5.2), T5 & T9 (5.1) but was the lowest in T10 & T4 (4.80). Average weight of fresh pod was significantly lowest in T4 , T6 & T10 (5.3g) than the highest in T3(6.5g) and all other treatments were intermediate and at par. From the present experiment it can be concluded that if KCl @ 2% is used for priming of French bean seeds it produces better yield attributing character & also recorded the better yield of 13.28 t/ha followed by 12.19t/ha with (GA3 50 ppm+ T. viride 10%) and the lowest pod yield of 8.10 t/ha was obtained in unprimed control.
