Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out to study the effect of solarisation on seed storability in green gram against bruchids (Callosobruchus maculatus) infestation. Eight treatments were maintained as a set of 4 treatments of inoculated with bruchids and another set of 4 treatments without bruchids & the experiment will replicate thrice and all were exposed to solarisation of various durations except control. Results revealed that, seeds exposed to four hours for three days and significantly differed in all seed quality parameters viz., number of eggs (192.33), number of adults (37.00), seed germination (79.67%), root length (7.22 cm), shoot length (17.73 cm), mean seedling length (24.95 cm), mean seedling dry weight (178 mg), seedling vigour index-I (1988) and seedling vigour index-II (1421) till nine months of storage compared to control (237.33, 62.67, 63.00%, 5.10 cm, 13.73 cm, 18.83 cm, 142 mg, 1375 and 1034, respectively).
