Abstract:

The laboratory Experiment entitled “Evaluation of seed quality parameters in coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.)” was carried out in the Seed Testing Laboratory, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, SHIATS, Allahabad. The objective of the present study was to assess physical, viability, seedling and vigour parameters of 10 coriander genotypes. Analysis of variances revealed the presence of considerable variation among the genotypes for all the characters viz., seed test weight (g), seed density (g/cm3), germination (%), speed of germination (day-1), root length (cm), shoot length (cm), seedling length (cm), vigour index length, seedling fresh weight(g), seedling dry weight (g), seed vigour index mass and seed metabolic efficiency (SME). On the basis of mean performance for physical parameters best genotypes COR-86 has been identified as the best genotype for the seed quality parameters viz., seed test weight, germination (%), speed of germination (days-1), root length (cm), Shoot length (cm), seedling length (cm), seedling dry weight(gm.), seed vigour index length, seed vigour index mass and seed metabolic efficiency. Whereas genotype RKC-44 has found superior for germination (%), speed of germination (days-1), root length (cm), Shoot length (cm), seedling length (cm), seed vigour index length and seed vigour index mass.
