Abstract:

In the present investigation rice genotype HUR 105 was selected to see the effect of seed priming on yield attributes and grain quality of rice. Priming of seeds has been done with distilled water (hydro), Mg(NO3)2 salt (halo) and Kinetin (T3), salicylic acid (hormonal) and different parameters, such as grain panicle-1, test weight, harvest index, panicle number hill-1, panicle length and amylose content were studied at different study periods with respect to two sowing conditions, representing timely and late sowing of rice crop. Priming of seeds was found to improve yield attributes and grain quality parameters over non-primed (control) sets in timely as well as in late sown conditions. The work therefore presents the late sown stress ameliorating role of seed priming in rice genotypes.
