Abstract:
This study was performed to determine the effect of organic macro and nano insecticides on seed quality of pulses. Treatments were 11 levels of organic based macro and nano insecticides. Sweet flag and neem seed kernel powder materials were synthesized to nano form using high energy planetary ball mill. The chickpea, pigeonpea and green gram seeds were treated with organic macro and nano based materials i e., 10-90% reduction in actual dosage. Among the different treatments studied, seed treated with sweetflag 70 per cent lesser than normal dosage (6.0 g/kg seed), neem seed kernel powder 40% lesser than actual recommended (3.0 g/kg seed) in chickpea. In pigeonpea sweetflag 60 per cent lesser (8.0 g/kg seed), neem seed kernel powder 70 per cent lesser than actual recommended dosage (1.5 g/kg seed) and that of green gram sweetflag 70 per cent lesser (10 g/kg seed), neem seed kernel powder 60 per cent lesser than actual recommended dosage (2.0 g/kg seed) recorded significantly higher seed germination and seedling vigour index over the other treatments and control.
