Abstract:

The current study was conducted at Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar to assess the seed vigour potential of 28 wheat varieties. These varieties assessed under 13 different parameter of vigour viz. Test weight (g), Standard germination (%),Seedling length (cm), Seedling dry weight (g), Vigour index-I [SG(%)×SL(cm)], Vigour index-II [SG(%)×SDW(g)], Accelerated ageing (%), Electrical conductivity (μs/cm/seed), Tetrazolium test (%), pH Exudates test, Seedling emergence index, Mean emergence Time and Seedling establishment (%). For these parameters 28 varieties show significant variation, this variation among vigour parameters of different varieties is closely associated with genetic makeup of these varieties due which some are superior while some are inferior. Varieties like C 306, PBW 590 and PBW 373 showed poor performance for all most all viability and vigour parameters whereas, variety DPW 71 showed very good performance for vigour parameters while it showed average performance for viability parameters.
