Abstract:

Fenugreek is one of the major and important spices grown in India. Application of commercial antioxidants and nutrients for seed enhancement is expensive and not easily accessible by the farmers. The hereby study was conducted in a completely randomized design with four replications in controlled conditions at Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P) during 2018-2020, to assess the potential of botanicals for germination, seedling vigour and germination index in fenugreek. Inorganic and organic priming methods were adopted and treatments used are as T0 (Control), T1- Distilled water, T2-KNO3 (1%), T3- (KNO3 (3%), T4- GA3 (100ppm), T5-PEG (20%), T6- CaCl2 (1%,), T7- CaCl2 (3%), T8- Aloevera leaf extract (5%), T9- Moringa leaf extract (5%), T10- Curry leaf extract (5%), T11- Tulasi leaf extract (5%) & T12 -Ginger extract (5%). It was found that all the treatments showed significant effect on quality parameters. The highest germination percentage (%), speed of germination, seedling length (cm), seedling fresh weight (g), seedling dry weight (g), and vigour indices were observed in treatment T12-Ginger extract (5%) priming for 12 hours. This study revealed that organic priming with botanicals can be effective in enhancing seed quality parameters in fenugreek, and are cost effective, economical, non-toxic and nature-friendly.
