Abstract:

Cluster bean (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba L.) popularly known as guar is a drought tolerant, deep-rooted, annual legume is grown for Vegetable, Food, Fodder, Green manure, Gum and as a seed. The fortification of seeds for better Growth and Yield has become important and emphasized. The study was conducted to determine the “Influence of seed fortification on growth, yield and seed quality in cluster bean (Cyamopsis tetragonaloba (L).). The experiment was carried out at Field Experimentation Centre of the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences. Prayagraj (UP) during Kharif-2019. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Blocked Design and comprised of 13 treatments and 3 replications. The treatments were T0 (Control), T1 (KH2PO4@1%), T2 (ZnSO4 @1%), T3 (MgSO4 @1%), T4 (KNO3@2%), T5 (Gibberlic Acid@ 200 ppm), T6 (Salislic Acid@ 2 ml), T7 (Pongamia Leaf Extract@1%), T8 (Moringa Leaf Extract@1%), T9 (Curry Leaf Extract@1%), T10 (Neem Seed Kernal Extract @5%), T11(Cow Urine@10%), T12 (Coconut Water@20 ml) with a soaking duration of 3 hours. The results revealed that seeds fortified withT1-KH2PO4@ 1% improved Germination% and T4 (KNO3@2%) improved the Growth, yield and yielding attributes and the least performance was observed in T0 (control) when compared with other treatments. There was an improvement in seed yield due to T4 (KNO3@2%) fortification than unfortified seeds. Hence, seed fortification with 2% of KNO3 could be recommended for cluster bean as a pre-sowing seed treatment.
