Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted to study the effects of different priming treatments on yield and yield attributing characters of soybean crop (SL-958). The seed priming treatments comprised of twelve priming treatments i.e. control or non-primed seeds, hydro or water primed seeds, seeds treated with solution of KNO3 (0.5 and 1.0 %), KH2PO4 (0.5 and 1.0 %), KCl (50 and 100 ppm), GA3 (50 and 100 ppm) and cytokinin (50 and 100 ppm) for 2 hour priming duration. Results revealed that yield attribute like number of pods per plant was recorded significantly higher with treatment 100 ppm GA3 whereas other yield attribute like seeds per pod and 100- seed weight recorded non-significant results with different priming treatments. The pooled seed yield shows increase by 30.6 % with 100 ppm GA3 than control.
