Abstract:

The experiment was conducted in Post Graduate Laboratory and Field Experimentation Centre of Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and sciences, Allahabad (U.P.)during Rabi 2017-18 in order to standardize the best method of priming viz., hydropriming, halopriming, osmopriming and organic priming evaluated by screening a range of duration concentrations viz., T0-Untreated (Control), T1-Distilled water (hydration), T2-Potassium chloride (KCL) (1%), T3-Potassium chloride (KCL) 2%, T4-polyethylene Glycol (PEG6000) 1%, T5- polyethylene Glycol (PEG6000) 2%, and T6- Neem Leaf Extract 5% for 8hours. It was found that all the priming methods showed significance difference with the control and the highest germination % speed of germination, root length, shoot length, seedling length, fresh weight, dry weight, vigour index-I and vigour index-II. It was observed for PEG6000best priming method. The Highest were observed in PEG and Neem leaf extract. In their solutions seeds priming for 8 hours and then dried for 24 hours in shade. This study Showed that seed priming Could improve some germination parameters in kabuli chickpea seed priming, its simplicity no requirements for extensive equipment and chemicals could be used method for overcoming problems related to a poor germination and seedling character, growth and vigour and with the help of seed priming treatments which are cost effective, economic, non-toxic and from eco-friendly sources.
