Abstract:
Seed priming and coating are considered as important seed quality enhancement techniques that result in early establishment of crop seedling. Thus, the effect of seed priming and coating with different doses of boron (B) and molybdenum (Mo) on growth, physiological quality and yield components of groundnut (cv. ICGV-91114) was evaluated. The experiment was taken in RBD having 21 treatments and three replications. The crop was grown in Rabi season of 2018-19 and 2019-20 at the Experimental Farm of OUAT, Bhubaneswar. Data revealed that seed germination and seed vigor index-I were highest in treatment T17 (T2 + T10), i.e., 0.5 g/l borax solution + 0.5 g/l sodium molybdate solution. Similarly, all measured yield attributing parameters i.e., pod yield per plant (g) and kernel yield per plant (g) were Significantly higher at treatmentT17 (T2 + T10) as compared to the other treatment combinations and control. The control plot resulted in the lowest values for all the parameters studied. It can be concluded that seed priming with 0.5 g/l borax solution + 0.5 g/l sodium molybdate solution can be used for obtaining higher seed yield of groundnut.
