Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on priming was conducted in Post Graduate Laboratory, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, SHUATS, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh during 2017-2018 on Chilli Kashi Anmol variety. The seeds are treated with different chemicals like Distilled water, (PEG 20%), (KCl 1%), (CaCl2 1%), (Neem Leaf Extract 5%) and (Eucalyptus Leaf Extract 5%). The treated seeds are soaked for 12hr for seed germination percentage, speed of germination, shoot length, root length, seedling length, seedling fresh weight and dry weight, seedling vigour index I and seedling vigour index II, Halopriming with KCl 1% and CaCl21% soaked to 12hrs. KCl 1% primed seed recorded higher germination percent (88.75%), speed of germination (16.77), root length (3.42cm), shoot length (5.36cm), seedling length (8.78cm), seedling fresh weight (2.17 g), seedling dry weight (0.025 g), seed vigour index I (779.80) and seed vigour II (2.17) the seed treated with KCl 1% followed by CaCl2 1% recorded numerical higher value compared to control. It was found that all priming treatment showed significance difference with the control.
