Abstract

Twelve treatment combinations with four varieties (Sharda, PBNS-12, PBNS-40 and NARI-6) and three seed priming treatments (hydro-priming, osmo-priming and matri-priming) were laid out in FRBD. Osmo-priming exhibited highest germination percentage at field and laboratory condition with better plant stand in field. Osmopriming also exhibited highest seed yield as compared to hydro-priming and matri-priming. The variety, PBNS-12 showed highest germination percentage in field and laboratory condition as compared to Sharda, PBNS-40 and NARI6.
