Effect of pre-sowing seed priming treatments on seed yield and quality in kabuli chickpea
Author(s): Avinash Karjule and Vijay Shelar
Abstract: Seed germination is the major constraint in kabuli chick pea which hampers optimum plant population and yield in kabuli chick pea. Three years study was undertaken with an objective of standardization of seed priming of Kabuli chickpea for assured field emergence. Nine pre sowing priming treatments were given to the kabuli chick pea variety Vihar along with un primed control. Among the treatments seed Priming with Vitavax @ 0.25% recorded significantly higher field emergence (89.83 %) which was 17.42 % higher over control as well as higher number of root nodules (29.84/plant), lower incidence of wilt (5.11%), higher number of pods/ plant (115.42), seed yield (2.19 kg plot-1), seed yield (1825.53 kg ha-1) and seed quality parameters viz., germination (91 %) and vigour index I (2748).
