Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season, 2018-19 at the Research Farm, Department of Seed Science and Technology, Chauras Campus, H. N. B. Garhwal University, Srinagar (Garhwal), Uttarakhand, India to study the effect of seed priming with botanicals on plant growth and seed yield of lentil (Lens culinaris M.). The experiment was laid out into Randomized Block Design and replicated three times. The field experiment consisted of six treatments viz., seed priming with neem leaf extract (50%), castor oil (20%), ginger extract (50%), onion extract (50%) and garlic extract (50%) and control. The seed priming with 50% extract of garlic inhibits germination due to the presence of Allicin. The maximum germination percentage (90.80%), number of branches per plant (5.20), seeds per pod (1.87), 1000 seeds weight (20.24 g), yield per plant (3.51 g) and yield per ha (9.94 g) were observed when seeds were primed with neem leaf extracts (50%). Whereas, maximum plant height at 60 DAS (12.80 cm) and number of pods per plant (174.73) were observed when seeds were primed with onion extract (50%).
