Abstract:
Experiment was conducted to test the storability effect of newer molecules of insecticides and botanicals as seed protectants (viz. Emamectin benzoate @ 40.0 mg/kg1 seed, Spinetorum @ 8.5 mg/kg-1 seed, Sivanto prime @ 0.01 ml/kg-1 seed, Karanj oil@ 5ml/kg seed, Castor oil @5ml/kg seed, Sunflower oil @5ml/kg seed, Mustard oil @5ml/kg seed, Sesamum oil @5ml/kg seed, Neem oil @5ml/kg seed, Neemoz gold @ 5 ml/kg-1 seed, Coconut oil @5ml/kg seed, Neem leaf powder @5g/kg seed, Neem kernel powder @5g/kg seed and Gorakhmundi powder @5g/kg seed protectants along with Deltamethrin 2.8 EC@0.04ml/kg seed.) in mungbean against Callosobruchus chinensis Linnaeus under ambient condition at Seed Technology Laboratory of Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya during 2019 and 2020. Among tested seed protectants, Emamectin benzoate @ 40.0 mg/kg1 seed followed by Sivanto prime @ 0.01 ml/kg-1 seed, Spinetorum @ 8.5 mg/kg-1 seed, Neemoz gold @ 5 ml/kg-1 seed and Karanj oil@ 5ml/kg seed was found most effective in respect to storability due to high percent seed germination, seedling length (cm),seedling dry weight, vigour index-i and vigour index-ii in respective seed protectants at 2, 4 and 6 months of ambient conditions of storage period.
