Abstract:

The experiment was conducted in Field Experimentation Centre, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad (U.P.) during kharif season 2016, in order to standardize the best method of priming specific to Blackgram (var. PU-31). Four methods of priming viz., hydropriming, osmopriming, halopriming, and organic priming with control (Unprimed) were evaluated by screening 12 hour duration and different concentrations viz., T0-Unprimed (Control), hydropriming - T1-Distilled water (hydration), osmopriming- T2- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG6000) 20%, halopriming- T3-Sodium Chloride (NaCl) 1%, T4–Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) 1%, organic priming- T5-Tulsi leaf extract (5%), T6-Curi leaf extract (5%). It was found that all the priming treatment showed significance difference with the control and the highest field emergence per cent and plant nodulation characters were observed for PEG6000 priming. Highest nodulation was observed in PEG and CaCl2. Seed priming, its simplicity and no requirement for expensive equipment and chemical could be used as a simple method for overcoming related to a poor germination and seedling establishment and helps in sustaining agriculture and cost effective and economic, non-toxic and eco-friendly sources.
