Abstract:

A storage experiment was conducted to understand the effect of seed treatments and packaging materials on seed quality parameters of Buckwheat genotypes during storage at Seed Testing Laboratory, Department of Genetics and plant Breeding, SHUATS, Prayagraj, U.P during 2019-2020.The Experiment. Consists of five genotypes viz, IC-13140(G1), IC-13143(G2), IC-13144(G3), IC-13191(G4) –IC-13412(G5). Seeds were treated with Neem oil at 5 ml/kg (T1) and carbendazim at 2 g/kg (T2) and seed alone with control ( untreated T0) and packed in polythene bag (C1) and cloth bag (C2) and maintained for 9 months under ambient conditions. The results clearly revealed that seeds of IC-13143 (G2) treated with neem oil which were stored in polythene bag were found high germination percent (82.75 %), root length (12.25 cm), shoot length (9.97 cm), seedling length (22.22 cm), fresh weight (0.8 g), dry weight (0.07 g), vigour index-I (1839.2), vigour index-II (5.38) and viability (70).
