Abstract:

Seed treatment with bio-inoculants is widely followed as it is beneficial to the plants and environment. However, the carrier based inoculants has short shelf life and difficult to use for large quantities of seed. Therefore, in the present study the liquid microbial cultures were used for seed infusion in paddy and assessed their compatibility with seed treating chemicals. Results showed that the seed soaking in consortia of Azospirillum @1:50 and PPFM @1:100 diluted cultures (1:1) for 18 h has recorded highest germination and seedling vigour with the microbial population of 51 x 104 (Azospirillum) and 1 x 104 (PPFM) cfu g-1 of seed. In addition, seed soaking in PPFM liquid culture @1:100 dilution for 18 h followed by polymer coating @ 5 ml and carbendazim @ 2 g kg-1 of seed has performed better in improving germination and vigour with the PPFM population of 4 x 104 cfu g-1 of seed.
