Green gram (Vigna radiata L.) is one of the important pulse crops in India. It is widely cultivated throughout India in three different seasons. Eight genotypes of green gram viz, Pusa Vishal, PM-11-9, IPM-2-3, Meha (IPM 99-125), Samrat, IPM-512-1, TMB-37, SML-1822 were primed with GA3 and Ag-nanoparticle for six hours. The laboratory experiment was done in seed testing laboratory, BCKV, West Bengal during 2019 & 2020. Germination percentage and vigour were observed to determine the change of seed quality after priming with Ag-Nanoparticle and GA3. While considering genotypes over treatments, significantly highest germination percentage was observed i.e. 93.41 and 93.86 during 2019 and 2020 respectively in G6 (IPM-512-1). The highest vigour index 1,899.182 and 1,897.412 were observed for G1 (Pusa Vishal) among the genotypes over treatments, during 2019 and 2020 respectively. The treatment over genotypes, T2 (Ag-Nanoparticle @ 20 ppm) was significantly higher than other treatments of germination percentage for both the year. Regarding treatment over the genotypes the maximum vigour index was observed 1,755.024 and 1,770.908 respectively in T2 (Ag-Nanoparticle @ 20 ppm) for both the years. So, Ag-Nanoparticle was proved to be the best treatment among the other treatments and Pusa Vishal was the best among the other genotypes.
