Abstract: Field experiments were carried out during 2010 and 2011, to evaluate the seed yield and quality performance of seed management techniques. The seeds of green gram cv. CO 6 were given hardening (hardening with MnSO4 100 ppm) and integrated seed treatment (designer seed) viz., hardening with MnSO4 100 ppm and hardening with MgSO4 100 ppm + Polymer 3ml/kg + Carbendazim 2g/kg + Imidacloprid 1ml/kg and sown along with contrsol seeds. The results revealed that, integrated seed treatment (designer seed) recorded higher field emergence, pod set (%), pod yield / ha, seed number/ podand seed yield / ha compared to MnSO4 hardening and control. The seed yield / ha in the best treatment was 620 kg ha-1, which was 6.0 per cent increase over the control and 4.2 per cent increase over MnSO4 hardening.
