Abstract:

The experiment was conducted during Rabi season 2018, in order to standardize the best method of priming specific to Chickpea (var. Desi). Four methods of priming viz- hydropriming, osmopriming, halopriming, and organic priming with control (Unprimed)were evaluated by screening a range of duration (12 hrs) and concentration viz., T0- Unprimed Control, hydropriming-  T1- Distilled water, osmopriming- T2- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) 5%, T3- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) 7%,  T4- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) 9%, halopriming- T5- Sodium Chloride (NaCl) 5%, T6- Sodium Chloride (NaCl) 7%, T7- Sodium Chloride (NaCl) 9%, T8- Potassium Chloride (KCl)5%, T9-Potassium Chloride (KCl)7%, T10-Potassium Chloride (KCl)9%, Organic priming- T11- Tulsi leaf extract (5%), T12- Neem leaf extract (5%). It was found that all the priming treatment showed significance difference with the control and the highest germination percent, seedling length, seedling fresh weight, seedling dry weight, vigour indices were observed for Osmopriming with Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) 7%. Seed pre-sowing seed treatment, used as a simple method for overcoming related to a poor germination and seedling establishment and helps in sustaining agriculture and cost effective and economic, non-toxic, eco-friendly sources.
