Abstract:

Seed processing is the most important component of quality seed production in achieving the prescribed physical seed standards wherein seed grading is the vital practice for better crop establishment and also useful in separation of quality seed in a seed lot. In this context, the present study on tracing optimum sieve size for size grading, maximum recovery of seeds and seed quality parameters in chickpea variety GBM-2 was conducted using oblong/slotted shape sieve of size 5.0 mm, 5.5 mm, 6.0 mm, 6.5 mm and 6.75 mm. On the basis of two years data, the results revealed that 5.0mm sieve recorded higher seed recovery (98.66 %) than other sieves with better seed quality parameters viz. germination percentage (87.00 %), 100 seed weight (18.34 grams), pure live seed (85.69 %) and physical purity (98.07 %). The recovery of good seed is found to increase to the extent of 3.0 to 4.0 per cent. Hence, seeds of chickpea variety GBM-2 could be size graded with 5.0mm (S) sieves for more seed recovery with Indian Minimum Seed Certification Standards (IMSCS) for seed grading.
