Abstract:
The present study was carried out to assess the effect of organic seed treatments on seed quality parameters of Ridge gourd (Luffa acutangula) under increased salinity concentrations. The study was carried out in the seed testing laboratory of Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, SHUATS, Prayagraj with the treatments as Panchagavya, Jeevamrutham, Beejamrutha, Coconut water and Aloevera extract of varying concentrations under salinity levels of 0 mM, 150mM and 250 mM NaCl. High salt conditions can inhibit seed germination and seedling growth in Ridge gourd. The results indicated that increased levels of salinity concentrations have negative impact on quality parameters of Ridge gourd. Soil salinity is the major abiotic factor that hinders the growth and establishment of the seedling. Priming enhances the quality parameters of the seedling up to certain salinity concentrations depending up on the type of primer and the dosage used for priming; beyond which it may be in efficient to show impact on the growth and development of seedling. Priming with coconut water and aloe vera extract were not found so effective in enhancing the seed quality parameters of Ridge gourd under the increased levels of salinity concentrations and its effect was recorded close to that of untreated control.
