Abstract:
Background: Lentil is one of the oldest annual grain legume srich in proteins, essential amino acids like isoleucine, lysine, dietary fiber, folate, vitamin B1, and minerals. Several biotic and abiotic factors were found as constraints that limit the seed production. Hence, seed priming methods were employed to access the effect on plant growth and yield of lentil.
Methods: Twelve treatments used in the study comprised of Control, KCl, KNO3, Rhizobium, Pseudomonas, Pungam, Moringa and Curry leaf extracts at various concentrations. Seeds were soaked for 12 hrs.in the cited treatments prior to sowing and experiment was carried out with an objective to assess its impact on growth and yield attributes.
Result: Irrespective of treatment type and concentration, all the treatments were found to be significant with respect to growth and yield parameters that were recorded. The treatments T5- Rhizobium @ 1% and T6- Pseudomonas @ 1% recorded maximum growth and yield amongst the treatments and found to be promising.
