Abstract:

Seed priming is a process of regulating the germination process by managing the temperature and seed moisture content, the seed is taken through the first biochemical processes within the initial stages of germination. The priming process regulates the seed’s temperature and moisture content, bringing the seed closer to the point of germination. The process involves advancing the seed to an equal stage of the germination process, to enable fast and uniform emergence when planted. Seed priming is a treatment of seeds with various priming agent for enhancement of germination and seedling quality besides improving the growth and flowering of plants. There are various methods of priming agent namely hydropriming which is a simple, economic and environmental friendly technique of priming the seeds. This protocol has practical importance and could be recommended to farmers to achieve higher germination, uniform emergence, improved growth, flowering and yield characteristics of flowers. On the other hand priming methods like osmopriming and nutripriming which uses different chemical priming agents like KNO3, Mannitol, KH2PO4 and NaCl of different concentrations dependent on the flower species to enhance the germination percentage and uniformity of the plant growth.


Keywords: Priming, NaCl, Germination, Uniformity and mannitol.
