Author(s): Rinkal Chauhan and PR Patel
An experiment was to know the efficacy of various seed bio-priming against chilli in vitro. Chilli (Capsicum frutescence L.) seeds were subjected to biopriming with Trichoderma viride, T. harzianum, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Bacillus subtilis and Paecilomyces lilacinus applied at imbibition and after imbibition. Seed bio-priming of chilli seeds in vitro revealed seed biopriming with P. fluorescens @10gm/kg seed recorded maximum seed germination 86.70% than the other treatment tested but it was statistically at par with T. harzianum applied at imbibition and minimum per cent infected seeds with P. fluorescens applied at imbibition 21.3%.
