Effect of seed hardening on morpho-physiological and yield parameters in black gram (Vigna mungo L.)


Author(s): KR Prajapati, DB Patel, Kalyanrao Patil and RS Bhadane

Abstract: The present investigations were carried out to study the effect of seed hardening on morpho-physiological and yield parameters in black gram. The black gram var. GU-1 was imposed with various seed hardening treatments i.e., CaCl2 @ 2%, 500 ppm Cycocel, 1000 ppm Cycocel, 25 ppm NAA, 50 ppm NAA, 150 ppm KNO3, 150 ppm KCl and Absolute Control. The above treated seeds along with control were evaluated for their seed quality parameters, morpho-physiological and yield parameters under field condition. The study revealed that seeds hardened with CaCl2 @ 2% recorded higher plant height (36.40 cm), leaf area (544.40 cm2), leaf dry weight (10.64 g), shoot dry weight (24.81 g), total dry weight (35.10 g), seed yield (4.36 g/ plant), 100 seed weight (4.74 g) and seed yield (821 kg/ha) at harvest as compared to other treatments and control.
