India is supremely based upon the agricultural productivity as well as the quantity of grains and pulses produced for fulfilling the food and fodder needs of the huge population. With the focus on production we need the seed treatment which refer to the application of particular agents (physical, chemical or biological) to the seeds before sowing with the motive to suppress, control or repel various pathogens, insects and pests that can attack seed, seedling or plant. Generally, it ranges from a basic dressing to coating and pelleting. The present study was undertaken with the view to accesses the impact of pre sowing seed treatment on yield and different characters related with it in cowpea. The different pre sowing seed treatments showed different responses against all the seed quality attributes. Three different fungicidal seed treatments were done namely, captan, vita-vax and Bavistin. Among all the treatments control exhibited the poorest performance for all seven seed yield related attributes.
