Effect of fluoride on wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) seed imbibition, germination and seedling growth

Author(s):
Basant Kumar Dadrwal, Vijai Pandurangam and Jai Prakash Srivastava
Abstract:
Germination paper roll test experiments were conducted to study the deleterious impacts of fluoride at concentrations of 0 (T1), 100 (T2), 200 (T3) and 300 (T4) ppm on seed germination and morphological parameters of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) variety HUW-234. It is observed that across increasing concentration of F the normal imbibition by seeds was restricted. This in turn evidently decreased seed germination percentage. Increased fluoride concentrations also reduced root and shoot lengths as well as root and shoot dry matter, with the critical observation of change in the ratio of root-to-shoot weight and the magnitude increased with increasing fluoride content. It can be concluded that increased fluoride content in germination media resulted in a decrease in seed germination and seedling growth and associated morphological parameters in HUW 234 cultivar of wheat, popular cultivar in the eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh.
