Abstract: An investigation was undertaken to study the effect of seed priming with iron and zinc on yield contributing parameters as well as the nutrient uptake of the Soybean (Glycine max). The field experiment was conducted at PGI, Research Farm. Department of Soil Science and Agril. Chemistry, M.P.K.V., Rahuri, during the kharif 2016-17. The effect of seed priming, or soaking seeds in nutrient solution for 12 hours before drying and sowing them, was done for soybean (Glycine max) during the kharif season of 2016 i.e. from 30-6-2016 to 10-9-2016 in M.P.K.V, Rahuri, Maharashtra. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replication and seven treatments. The treatment comprised of absolute control, GRDF (general recommended dose of fertilizer) (50:75:45 kg ha-1 N : P2O5:K2O + 5 t FYM ha-1), GRDF with seed priming with distilled water, GRDF with seed priming with Zn EDTA, GRDF with seed priming with ZnSO4, GRDF with seed priming with Fe EDTA, GRDF with seed priming with FeSO4. Better results were obtained from priming the seeds compared to the controlled one. There were significant differences in the germination percentage among the treatments. The highest was shown in the seed priming with Zn EDTA @ 0.2%. Vigour index too showed significant difference due to seed priming. Germination index was highest in the treatment FeSO4.7H2O @ 0.02%. Chlorophyll content showed non-significant difference among the treatments with highest being in treatment FeSO4.7H2O @ 0.02%. The nodule count of soybean plants was highest in treatment FeSO4.7H2O @ 0.02%. The major nutrient (NPK) uptake was comparatively higher in the treated plot over the non-treated controlled plot.
