Abstract:

Bamboo set seeds once in life time, and the seeds are poor storer, necessitates the preservation of seeds until net availability. Experiments were conducted with one year refrigerated stored medium vigour (78% germination and vigour index of 1522) seeds of Bambusa bambos to extend the storage life. The seeds were soaked in 0.25 and 0.5% of Para Amino Benzoic Acid, 0.5 and 0.75% of Para Hydro Benzoic Acid, 0.1 and 0.2% of KH2PO4, 500, 600 ppm of α – tocopherol solutions and water for a duration of 30 min, 1, 2, 4, 6, and 12h as a mid-storage seed treatment to maintain the viability and vigour. The experiment results revealed that mere water soaking for 4h and drying could able to improve the germination (91%) and vigour (1738) immediately after treatment when compared to chemical and vitamin solutions. From the observations, water soaking for 4h and drying can be recommended as NO COST mid storage seed treatment for better performance of B. bambos seeds.
