Abstract:

The present investigation has been planned to study the influence of growing seasons on the expression of the sowing qualities as well as nutritional qualities(moisture content, germination and field emergence percentage, vigour and storability)of seeds of all five varieties of sesame (Uma, Amrit, Nirmala, CUMS-17, Prachi). Uma was having lowest (8.41 %) and Amrit was the highest (8.56 %) percentage of moisture content and by comparing these three different seasons, the lowest was in summer season (8.03%) while the highest was in kharif season (9.09 %). Nirmala was having lower (81.11 %) and Prachi was the highest (82.89 %) percentage of germination. And the lower germination percentage was in rabi season (76.66 %) while the higher germination percentage was found in kharif season (84.40 %).Uma was having smallest (5.16 cm) and Nirmala was the highest (5.53 cm) in seedling length. The smallest seedling length was found in rabi season (4.97 cm) while the longest was in kharif season (5.80 cm).Uma, Nirmala and Prachi were having less (0.002 g) and Amrit and CUMS 17 were having highest (0.003 g) seedling dry weight. Seed vigour index-I was maximum in Nirmala (452.01) and minimum in Uma (420.91) and the lowest was found in rabi (381.61) while the highest was in kharif season (490.69).Uma, Nirmala and Prachi were having lower (0.22) and CUMS 17 was the highest (0.28) in seed vigour index-II, and highest was found in kharif season (0.28).
