Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at the Department of Seed Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur to study the influence of seed polymer coating with micronutrients on growth, seed yield of linseed. The experiment consisted of twenty three different seed polymer coating treatments with various combinations of ZnSO4, boron, ammonium molybdate, FeSO4, CaSO4 including control. Among the different treatments imposed, seed polymer coating (@ 2 ml/kg) of linseed seeds with the combination of ZnSO4 + Boron + Ammonium molybdate + FeSO4 + CaSO4 (each @ 1 g/kg) of seed recorded significantly higher plant height, leaf area index, chlorophyll content, days to 50% flowering, number of capsules per plant, number of seeds per capsule, seed yield, 1000 seed weight compared to all other treatments and control.
