Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to assess the effect of temperature variation (200c, 250c and 300c) in five parents (Pusa Rohini, Azad Type-2, KS-7, KS-229 and Azad Type-3) and their 10 hybrids (Pusa Rohini x Azad Type-2, Pusa Rohini x KS-7, Pusa Rohini x KS-229, Pusa Rohini x Azad Type-3, Azad Type-2 x KS-s, Azad Type-2 x KS-229, Azad Type-2 x Azad Type-3. KS-7 x KS-229, KS-7 x Azad Type-3 and KS-229 x Azad Type-3) on quality seed parameters, at seed testing laboratory, Department of Seed Science & Technology, Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, during 2011-12 & 2012-13. Study revealed that among the parents, Pusa Rohini and among the hybrids, Pusa Rohini x Azad Type-2 combination at 200c was found to be over all best for exhibiting highest germination, seedling dry weight and vigour index.
