Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during Rabi season 2012-2013 for the evaluation different levels of leaf cuttings and its impact on the seed quality fenugreek genotypes. Ten genotypes were sown (November 12, 2012) with two sets of treatments (Rhizobium inoculation and without Rhizobium) and three level of leaf cuttings (no cutting, one cutting at 30 days, two cuttings at 30 and 40 days after sowing) and after attaining full maturity seeds were harvested respectively and after that different seed quality parameters were conducted to assess the effect of Rhizobium inoculation and three levels of leaf cutting on seed quality of fenugreek genotypes. Maximum field emergence percentage was observed for the genotype HM-348. The highest seedling length and dry weight was observed with Rhizobium treatment in the genotype HM-291 with no cutting. The maximum seedling vigour index was observed with Rhizobium treatment by the genotype HM-291 with no cutting. Minimum electrical conductivity (0.069µS/cm/seed) was observed for genotype Hisar Sonali without Rhizobium treatment with no cutting and HM-348 recorded maximum seed density with Rhizobium treatment with no cutting. The genotype HM-348 and HM-291 were observed superior in most of the seed quality parameters. Seed inoculation with Rhizobium culture influenced the seed quality parameters in comparison to no inoculation.
