Abstract: The present investigation entitled “To find out the effect of seed priming on growth and yield parameter of rice” was carried out at Research cum Instructional Farm, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur during Kharif season 2015-16. The soil of experimental field was clayey in texture (Vertisols), neutral in pH and has 0.64 % organic carbon, low nitrogen, high phosphorus and potassium content. Experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. The rice variety Rajeshawari tested under two different recommended doses of fertilizers i.e. 100% (100:60:40 N:P2O5:K2O kg ha-1) and 80% (80:48:32 N:P2O5:K2O kg ha-1) and seed priming along with distilled water and nutrients i.e. potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KH2PO4) and EDTA Zn of concentration 0.5% P and 0.1% Zn, respectively. Seeds were primed in distilled water and nutrient solution for 12 hrs and then air-dried for 2 hrs. Dry seeds was also used as control. They were sown in mini plots in field. Plants were harvested after maturity. The result of experiments indicated that 100% GRD with seed priming (N0: P (0.5%): K0: Zn (0.1%)) registered maximum growth and yield characters of rice like number of effective tillers, number of filled grain per panicle and test weight followed by 100% GRD with water soaked seed.
