Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2013 at Department of Horticulture, UAS, GKVK, Bangalore to understand the influence of seed pelleting on seed yield and quality of french bean cv. Arka Anoop. The experiment consists of eight treatments with seed pelleting viz., T1(control), T2 (seed pelleting with clay + Gypsum (1:1), T3 (seed pelleting with clay +Neem leaf powder + Gypsum (1:1:1), T4 (seed pelleting with biofertilizers (Rhizobium) @ 30 g/kg), T5 (seed pelleting with ZnSO4 @ 3g/kg), T6 (seed pelleting with Borax @ 3g /kg), T7 (seed pelleting with Capton (2.5g/kg) + Imidacloprid (2.5g/kg) and T8 (seed pelleting with ZnSO4 @ 3g/kg + borax @ 3g/kg + Capton (2.5g/kg) + Imidacloprid (2.5g/kg) and laid out in RCBD design with three replications. The experimental results indicated the superiority of seed pelleting with ZnSO4 @ 3g/kg + borax @ 3g/kg + Capton (2.5g/kg) + Imidacloprid (2.5g/kg) as compared to all other treatments including unpelleted control. Data on seed yield and quality parameters such as number of seeds per pod (5.33), seed yield per plant (24.47g), seed yield per plot (513.8g), seed yield per hectare (28.54q), seed index (36.39g), germination (99.00%), root length (22.83cm), shoot length (12.36cm), root and shoot ratio (0.540), seedling length (35.20cm), seedling dry weight (248.83mg), seedling vigour index-I (3484), seedling vigour index-II (2463), lower electrical conductivity (1.16dScm-1), pH of seed leachate (6.96) and total dehydrogenase activity (2.77) was maximum in seed pelleted with ZnSO4 @ 3g/kg + borax @ 3g/kg + Capton (2.5g/kg) + Imidacloprid (2.5g/kg) compared to control.
