Effect of Seed Priming on Seed Quality of Tomato (Solanum lycoperscium L.)

Author(s):
Yogesh Kumar Patel and Dr. Prashant Kumar Rai
Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out to assess the effects of different priming treatments on seedling characters on two variety of tomato (Navodya and S-22) in the Seed Testing Laboratory of the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Allahabad during 2015-16. The two varieties (Navodya and S-22) are conducted in Complete Randomized Block Design (CRBD) having four replications treated with Distilled Water @100 ml., Sodium Chloride and Potassium Nitrate @1% solution (Halo-priming) at different period interval ie. at 12hour, 24hour and 36hour respectively. The variety S-22 was identified as the best for the seed quality parameters and vigour parameters viz. germination percentage (91.75%),Vigour index length(1957.52), Vigour index mass(9.083), Seed metabolic efficiancey (0.188), Electrical conductivity of seed leachates(dsm-1)(91.59), while Navodya was found superior for germination percentage. The variance revealed presence of considerable variability among the genotypes for all the characters. The variety S-22 can be beneficial for the farmer as its germination percentage is good it may be grown in farmer field so that they can get more production.
