Abstract: The experiment was conducted in laboratory Department of Genetic and Plant Breeding SHUATS Allahabad UP during 2017, in order standardize the best method of priming specific to Red gram. Seed priming using various method like that viz., hydropriming, helopriming and osmoprimong, biopriming were evaluated by screening a range of duration and concentration viz., T0 Control, hydropriming, osmopriming- PEG (20%), helopriming (KCl 1%), (CaCl2 1%), bioprming (Neem leaf Extract 5%) and (Eucalyptus extract 5%)for 14 hours. It was found that all the priming method showed signification difference with the control and the highest per centage germination, seedling length, weight and germination index were observed for PEG priming for 14 hours.
