The present experiment was conducted during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 with sixty genotypes of fennel for the assessment of seed quality and vigour. Seeds of different genotypes were collected from different locations of India (Gujarat, Haryana, Rajasthan, Bihar etc.). These diverse genotypes were sown (13 November 2015 for first year and 11 November 2016 for second year) with Augmented block design and seed harvesting (20 May, 2015 for first year and 25 May 2017 for the second year) was done after full maturity. All seeds lots were analyzed in completely randomized design (CRD) with three replication for test weight (g), standard germination (%), seedling length (cm), fresh weight (cm), dry weight per seedling (mg), vigour index I and II. The results revealed significant variability among the sixty genotypes of fennel and HF-116, HF-124, HF-206, HF-207 found superior in terms of seed quality and vigour. Among all the genotypes most promising genotypes for various seed quality parameters were used for carryover seed and also can be used as a breeding material for further breeding of fennel genotypes.

Keywords: Fennel, Seed quality, Vigour, Viability, Variability.
