Abstract: An experiment was carried out at Seed Testing Laboratory, Department of Seed Science & Technology, Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture & Technology, Kanpur during 2013-14. The freshly harvested varieties of wheat viz., K-307 (V1), K-9162 (V2), K-8027 (V3), K-9107 (V4), K-9644 (V5), K-402 (V6), K-9351 (V7), NW2036 (V8), K-1006 (V9) and DBW-14 (V10) were taken from Section of Rabi Cereals, evaluated for various seed quality parameters and vigour tests viz., 1000 Seed / grain weight (g.), standard germination test (%), seedling length (cm.), seedling dry weight (g.), seed vigour index-I, seed vigour index-II, chlorophyll intensity(%), fat content (%), protein content (%), brick gravel test (%) and field emergence test (%). On the basis of performance of ten wheat variety K8027 stood first position, K9162 on second, K1006 on third, K9644 on fourth and K9107 on fifth position, remaining other five varieties of wheat K0307, K0402, K9351, NW2036 and DBW14 had significantly inferior performance than the other varieties of wheat because these had low vigour during experiment.
