Lentil is one of the major and important legume grown in India. Application of commercial antioxidants and nutrients for seed enhancement is economic and easily accessible to 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 different seed priming treatments for germination, seedling vigour and germination index in lentil. Priming is done by adopting different methods i.e., T0- Unprimed seed as control, T1- Hydro-priming with distilled water, T2 &T3-Hormonal priming with IAA (50ppm, 100ppm), T4 –Osmo priming with PEG 6000 (10%), T5 & T6-Electrical priming at (100mA, 200mA), T7 & T8- Magnetic priming at (100mT, 200mT) and T9, T10,T11,T12 – Halo priming with KNO3 and KCl (1%, 3%).It was found that all the priming methods showed significant difference with the control and highest germination percentage (%), germination index, seedling length (cm), seedling fresh weight (g), seedling dry weight (g), and vigour indices were observed in KNO3 (T10) priming for 15 hours. Priming with PEG 6000(10%), Distilled water, KNO3 (1%) were the most effective in boosting germination percent and germination index. This study showed that Halo-priming can be effective in enhancing seed quality parameters in lentil, and are cost effective and are, easily available.
