The experiment was conducted in field and laboratory Department of Genetic and Plant Breeding SHUATS Allahabad UP during 2018, in order standardize the best method of hardening specific to lentil. Seed hardening using T0 Control, Hydration in water, KNO3 (2%), NaCl (2%), (CaCl2 2%), KH2PO4 (2%), (Neem leaf Extract 5%) and Curry leaf extract- 5% for 8 hours. It was found that all the Hardening method showed signification difference with the control and the higest germination percentage, seedling length, root length, shoot length, seedling dry weight seedling fresh weight, number of nodules per plant, nodules fresh weight, nodules dry weight, number of pod per plant, number of seed per plant, 100 seed weight and seed yield were observed for KH2PO4 hardening for 8 hours.
