Abstract:

Vegetables form an important constituent in Indian diet and play a vital role in human nutrition. The experiment was carried out under field condition to study the effect of seed biopriming with various biopriming agents (Azospirillum, Phosphobacteria, Pseudomonas fluorescens) on yield and yield components of pumpkin cv. CO2. Under laboratory condition it was found that, the best biopriming treatments were non primed seed, hydropriming, biopriming with Phosphobacteria 20 % + Pseudomonas fluorescens 20 %, biopriming with Azospirillum 10 % + Phosphobacteria 20 % + Pseudomonas fluorescens 20 %. The performance and productivity of bioprimed seeds under field conditions brought out the positive influence of seeds bioprimed with Azospirillum 10 % + Phosphobacteria 20 % + Pseudomonas fluorescens 20 % for 12 hr maximizing the plant growth and development, seed yield and quality of resultant seed. The seed yield for this treatment was 304 kg ha-1 which accounted for 21 per cent increase over the non-primed seed.
