Abstract:

A laboratory experiment was carried out in the Department of Seed Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, Vijayapura, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during 2017-18 to study the effect of seed polymer coating along with fungicide on seed quality parameters of kabuli chickpea varieties during storage. The variety MNK 1 showed better storage performance as compared to KAK 2. Among the seven different treatments viz., control, polymer 10 ml/kg seed, polymer 20 ml/kg seed, vitavax 3 g/kg seed, polymer (10 ml/kg of seed) + vitavax power (3 g/kg of seed), polymer (20 ml/kg of seed) + vitavax power (3 g/kg of seed) and castor oil (10 ml/kg seed) the kabuli chickpea seeds treated with polymer (20ml/kg of seed) + vitavax power (3g/kg of seed) recorded significantly higher germination(94.25%), shoot length (11.29cm), root length (17.74cm), seedling vigour index (2736), seedling dry weight (519.18mg/10seedlings), hundred seed weight (45.21g), lower electrical conductivity (0.757 dSm-1) and no insect damage upto nine months of storage followed by the treatment combination polymer (10 ml/kg of seed) + vitavax power (3 g/kg of seed). Hence the same treatment combination can be used to store seeds for longer period without much deterioration.
