Abstract:
A lab experiment was conducted during 2014-15 at department of Soil science and Agril. Chemistry, College of Agriculture, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani using different six soybean cultivars to study the seed hydration value for germination of soybean varieties. The treatment consist of six soybean cultivars viz. JS-335, MAUS-71, MAUS-158, MAUS-162, MAUS-504 and MAUS-609. The results emerged out clearly indicated that various parameters like seed germination percentage, Seed hydration value and seed germination rate was different for different cultivars under study. Amongst all cultivars MAUS-504 is best for rainfed / dry land areas because the variety MAUS-504 had lowest seed hydration value. JS-335 and MAUS-71 showed maximum seed hydration value and reduction in germination to a great extend under critical moisture level. These varieties showed optimum germination under sufficient moisture level condition.
