Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out on fennel seeds of fifteen genotypes viz., HF 33, HF 101, HF 102, HF 103, HF 104, HF 105, HF 106, HF 107, HF 108, HF 109, HF 114, HF 115, HF 118, HF 122 and HF 124 with three lots of seed viz., freshly harvested seed (Lot-1), one year old seed (Lot-2) and two year old seed (Lot-3). The seeds were subjected to study the effect of ambient storage on different seed viability and vigour parameters. Correlation coefficient analysis was employed to find out the interrelationship between various seed quality parameter viz., test weight, standard germination, seedling length, seedling fresh weight, seedling dry weight, seedling vigour index-I, seedling vigour index- II, accelerated ageing test, Tetrazolium test, dehydrogenase activity test, electrical conductivity test, pH exudates test and field emergence (%). Field emergence showed positive and significant correlation with seedling length (0.839), standard germination (0.879), seedling fresh weight (0.808), seedling dry weight (0.742), vigour index-I (0.880), vigour index-II (0.772), tetrazolium test (0.890), accelerated ageing test (0.729), dehydrogenase activity test (0.757) and pH exudates test (0.734) while negative and significant correlation was found with electrical conductivity (0.845). As standard germination, seedling vigour index-I and tetrazolium test were found highly correlated with field emergence they can be used as reliable predictors of field emergence (%).


Keywords: Ageing, seed lots, seed quality, correlation, field emergence (%), coriander.
