Abstract:

The laboratory study was conducted to ameliorate the aged seeds of soybean mini core set by using various antioxidants and osmotics viz., α-tocopherol (1 %), ascorbic acid (1 %), potassium iodide (2.5 %) and PEG-6000 (1 %). Results revealed that the amelioration with α-tocopherol (1 %) and ascorbic acid (1 %) treatments showed a marked increase in the seed physio-biochemical parameters like seed germination (from 61 % to 74 %), seedling vigour index I (from 783 to 1292), seedling vigour index II (from 330 to 446) and decrease in electrical conductivity (1.80 dS/cm to 1.63 dS/cm) and membrane injury index (53.9 % to 51.8 %) compared to untreated aged seeds. Results of these amelioration treatments indicates the repair and re-synthesizing ability of antioxidants and their role in stabilizing seed deterioration damages in aged seeds. The data’s were statistically analyzed by analysis of variance (P ≤ 0.01).
