Abstract:

The loss of vigour and viability of high-vigour onion seeds (cv. Agrifound Dark Red) could be effectively controlled by pre-storage seed invigoration treatment with crude plant preparations viz., Capsicum frutescens L. (red chilli powder) @ 2g/kg of seed, Azadirachata indica L. (neem leaf powder) @ 2g/kg of seed, Aegle marmelos L. (bael leaf powder) @ 2g/kg and Citrus limon L. (lemon leaf powder) @ 2g/kg of seed and chemical treatment viz. mancozeb @ 2g/kg of seed. Field performances of the pre-storage treated seeds were significantly greater than that of untreated (control) seed. Among the treatments, crude plant preparations viz. lemon leaf powder and bael leaf powder showed better results in improving germinability and field performance (relation to plant height, mean bulb length, mean bulb diameter, mean bulb weight per plant etc.) over untreated control and all treated seed. Thus, based on the above results, pre-storage seed invigoration treatments with lemon leaf powder and bael leaf powder may be suggested for the maintenance of germinability during storage and field performance of onion.
