Effect of different hydro and osmopriming materials on germination and seedling growth of mung bean
Author(s): Surajit Kundu, Bimal Das and Rakesh Yonzone
Abstract: A laboratory experiment was carried out to study the effect of different seed priming chemicals (IBA, GA3, H3BO3 and PEG-6000) at different concentrations for improving induced stress tolerance potential regarding germination and seedling growth of mungbean. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomised Design (CRD) replicated thrice. Application of IBA (10 ppm), GA3 (10 ppm) and H3BO3 (0.05%) in mungbean resulted as increase in germination percentage to the tune of 5.39%, 3.53% and 4.56%, respectively as compared to control as well as other priming treatments. GA3 at 5 ppm concentration resulted in highest shoot length, however, regarding root length IBA at 100 ppm resulted best. Application of GA3 at all concentrations had higher vigour index. Among all the seed priming treatments PEG-6000 had no additional benefit on seed germination of mungbean though it had pronounced effect on root growth.
