Abstract:

Seed germination and subsequent seedling growth define crucial steps for entry into the plant life cycle and proper seed germination is a basic pre-requisite for getting a better crop yield. Hence standardization of hydropriming duration in spinach seeds is an important pre-requisite to improve physiological and biochemical parameters, therefore seeds were soaked in different time intervals from 12, 16, 20, 24, 28 and 32 hours. Seeds soaked in water for 24 hours improved seed quality parameters over control, where germination increased to 94.25 per cent in seeds soaked in 24 hours.
