Effect of smoke on quality parameters based on germination and post germination response on smoke treated pulses

Abstract:
The studies on the effect of smoke on germination and post germination response on seed quality parameters of treated green gram seeds was conducted under Completely Randomized block Design (CRD). The experiments conducted resulted in no adverse effect on germination percent, rather the treatment of pulse seeds at different exposure to smoke enhanced the germination percentage. The treatment of green gram seeds with neem seed cake (97 to 100%) was most effective followed by Mustard seed cake (95-99%), Karanj seed cake, cow dung cake and wheat husk smoke at 120 h of smoke exposure. Similarly, the germination index, root length, shoot length, vigor index and significance of variability was also found more in smoke treated pulse seeds in comparison to untreated control which clearly showed positive effect of smoke on germination and post-germination response of pulse seeds. Hence, it may be concluded that these eco-friendly and cost-effective products can easily be made available and used as seed treatment stored pulses without impairing the quality of seeds for 3 months of storage period.
