Abstract:
A laboratory study was conducted to know the effect of solarization against bruchid infestation and seed germination in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.) during July 2018 to April 2019 in the Department of Seed Science and Technology and National Seed Project, University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK, Bengaluru. The statistical design used for study was completely randomized block design (CRD). The study consists of eight treatments with three replications. The experiment results revealed that solarization of fresh seeds in clear polyethylene (700 gauge) packet for 3h for 6 days recorded significantly least insect infestation (3.5%), number of dead insects (5.75%), number of live insects (4.25%) and highest germination (70.67 %) compared to control after nine months of storage under ambient condition.
