Abstract:
Seed germination and subsequent seedling growth define crucial steps for entry into the plant life cycle and proper seed germination is a basic prerequisite for getting a better crop yield. In the present investigation the seeds of chilli were soaked in water for different duration viz., 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 h to know the effective soaking duration which in turn will enhance the seed germination and seedling vigour. The results obtained showed that the seeds soaked for 12 h (T5) showed significantly positive effect on seed germination (68.67%) and seedling vigour index (1065) compared to other soaking duration and control (62.00% and 664, respectively) (T1). Likewise increase in root length (8.21 cm) and shoot length (5.86 cm) was also recorded in the same hour (12 h), compared to control (6.19 cm and 4.29 cm, respectively).
