Abstract:

Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.), a good source of protein and oil, is used to produce nutritious is of lavone-rich soybean-based foods. The present investigation “Influence Of Hydration Treatments On Seedling Characters Of Soybean (Glycine max L.)” is carried out in the Post graduate laboratory, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding and P.G. Laboratory, Department of biochemistry (JIBB),Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India during 2019-2020, to assess the potential of botanicals for germination, seedling vigour and germination index in Soybean. Inorganic and organic priming methods were adopted and treatments used are as T0 (Control), T1 –Zinc sulphate (ZnSO4) (2%), T2 – Magnesium sulphate (MgSO4)(2%), T3 –Potassium chloride (KCl)(2%), T4- Potassium nitrate (KNO3) (2%),T5-Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) 6000nm(20%),T6-Salicylic acid (2%), T7 - Moringa leaf extract (5%) ,T8 - Curry leaf extract (5%) , T9- Mint leaf extract(5%) T10 - Neem leaf extract (5%).The experiment was laid out in completely randomized design (CRD) having four replications. Among all the treatments PEG 6000nm recorded high germination percentage, germination energy, root length, shoot length, seedling length, fresh and dry weight of seedling, seed vigor index length and seed vigor index mass. However, there is no much significant difference in the protien content of seeds hydrated with botanicals and chemicals compared to control. The results indicate that the use of PEG6000 enhances the seed performance regarding germination and vigor. The process is simple and in economy as no costly equipment is required to overcome the poor germination and poor seedling establishment.
