Abstract: A laboratory experiment was conducted at department of seed science and technology, college of agriculture, Raichur during December-2018 to know the effect of seed priming with chemicals, micronutrients and bio-inoculants on seed quality parameters of resultant seed in foxtail millet. The experiment consisted of twelve treatment combinations. A laboratory experiment was conducted at department of seed science and technology, college of agriculture, Raichur during 2018-19 to know the influence of different seed priming methods on seed quality parameters in foxtail millet of resultant seeds. The seeds produced from the field experiment are evaluated in the laboratory for quality assessment. The seed quality parameters differed significantly between the treatments. Seed priming with Azospirillum (20 %) + Pseudomonas fluorescens (20 %) + Phosphobacter (20 %) + Zn SO4 (0.1 %) + Boron (0.1 %) (T12) recorded significantly higher seed germination percentage (90.67 %), seedling length (18.43 cm), seedling dry weight (24.33 mg), seedling vigour index I and II (1671 and 2206 respectively) and lower electrical conductivity (0.013 dSm-1) compared to control (81.33 %., 16.12 cm, 17.03 mg, 1311, 1386 and 0.022d Sm-1 respectively).
