Abstract:
A Field experiment was conducted during the kharif season of 2017 at the main research field of department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Science, Allahabad U.P. (India) A study was conducted on Effect of seed hardening treatment and foliar application on yield parameter of black gram [Vigna mungo (L.)] (MASH-338) during Kharif 2017. An attempt was made to identify a suitable and effective chemical for seed hardening and foliar improving the seed yield and quality. The chemicals and botanical treatment used for seed hardening and foliar application were T0 (Control), T1 (2% KNo3), T2 (2% KCl), T3 (2% CaCl2), T4 (2% KH2Po4), T5 (5% Gulmohar (Delonixelata) leaf extract), T6 (5% Curry leaf (Murrya koenigii) leaf extract), T7 (5% Papaya (Carica papaya) leaf extract), T8 (5% Neem (Azadirachta indica) leaf extract). Seed hardening with T2 (2% KCl) improved the seed quality and yield parameters, compared to control. Seed hardening with T2 (2% KCl) and foliar application improved the seed yield and quality parameters, compared to control.
