Abstract:

The present investigation a series of laboratory experimental was conducted in the post graduate Seed Testing Laboratory, Department of Genetics and plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & sciences Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India during 2017-2018. Chickpea variety (C- 128) and (C-130) was obtained from department of Genetic and plant breeding Research farm at SHUATS Allahabad UP. Seed treated Camphor oil @ 10 ml/kg seed (T1), Castor oil @ 5 ml/kg seed (T2), Neem oil @ 10 ml/kg seed (T3), Eucalyptus oil @ 10 ml/kg (T4) seed alone with control (untreated T0) and packed in polythene bag (P1), air tight box (P2), cloth bag (P3) and paper bag (P4) and maintained for 6 months with 8 % seed moisture content under ambient conditions. The result clearly revealed that seed stored in polythene bag and treated with neem oil, variety C-130 (V2) was found high germination per cent (84.83%) and lowest electrical conductivity (1.54 dsm-1) was recorded variety C-130 (V2) and other parameters like root length (14.83 cm), shoot length (11.19cm), seedling length (26.00cm), fresh weight (3.40g), dry weight (1.27g), vigour index-I (1969) and vigour index- II (94.24) were found best in variety C-128 (V1) found superior than variety C-130 (V2).
