Abstract

The present experiment was conducted during Rabi 2019 at experimental field of Pulses Research unit, Dr. PDKV, Akola to assess the suitable priming treatment for chickpea crop (variety: JAKI-9218). The experiment was laid out in randomize block design in three replication. The morpho-physiological traits viz. germination %, plant height, number branches, dry matter content, number of day required to 50% flowering were taken.. The morpho-physiological i.e. plant height, number of branches, dry matter content, germination % showed significant increased in chickpea crop when seed priming was carried out with potassium nitrate for 4 hours. The numbers of days required to 50% flowering were recorded least in seed priming GA3 for 4 hours. Protein content also recorded significantly higher in seed priming with potassium nitrate for 4 hours. Yield and yield attributes were also significantly increased in seed priming with potassium nitrate for 4 hours. It is concluded that seed priming were with potassium nitrate for 4 hours recorded higher morpho-physiological characters over priming treatment and control.

Keywords: Seed priming, germination, growth parameters, GA3, potassium nitrate
