Effect of seed priming on growth, physiology and yield of lentil (Lens Culinaris Medie) Cv. Ndl-1

Author(s): Prashansha Singh, Anand Kumar Pandey and AH Khan
Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Effect of seed priming on growth, physiology and yield of Lentil (Lens culinaris Medie) cv. NDL-1” was carried out at the experimental site of Department of Crop Physiology, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Kumarganj, and Faizabad-224229 (U.P.) during Rabi season 2012-2013 in Complete Randomized Design (RBD) with three replications and seven treatments on variety NDL-1. Observations were recorded at 30, 60 and 90 DAS. Cycocel (100 ppm, 200 ppm), GA3 (250 ppm, 500 ppm) and IAA (250 ppm, 500 ppm) concentrations were used as treatments. The treatment was comprised of seed priming along with untreated control. The observations had been studied on growth, biochemical, yield and yield attributes parameters of the NDL-1. Seed priming was performed for 8 hours. It is resulted from the study that GA3 500 ppm significantly increased all the parameters except number of branches and dry weight plant-1 followed by GA3 250 ppm. Cycocel at both the concentration (100, 200 ppm) were found more effective in increasing number of branches and dry weight plant-1. Hence, the use of PGRs in lentil crop enhancing production and productivity by improving responsible traits for growth and yield.
