Abstract:
Present investigation was undertaken to see the effect of different plant hormones like GA3 and ABA on germination and other seedling characters of cultivars of oil seed and pulses. Seed treatment with GA3 and ABA at the concentration 10-3 M was provided for 2 hours. After that treated and control seeds were placed in square glass plate with three replications and placed inside germinator. After germination in case of oil seed, Jhumka (V1) recorded the highest germination percentage (94.11%) for T1 followed by T2 and lowest germination percentage (91.87%) was recorded for control. For the variety Bhagirathi (V2) a slight decrease in germination was recorded in case of T2 than control, whereas, T1 recorded the highest of it (97.26%). For pulses, Goutom (V3) recorded highest value of germination percentage for T1 and lowest value for the T2. For V4, T0 was found with highest germination percentage followed by T2 and T1. Seedling shoot length (cm) of V1 was the highest in case of T1 followed by T0 and slight decrease was noticed for T2 where the value was 8.95 cm. In case of V2, highest seedling shoot length was noticed for T1 and lowest (7.91 cm) for T0. For V3, T1 was observed with highest value followed by T0 whereas T2 recoded lowest value. In case of V4, it obtained the highest seedling shoot length (12.74 cm) for T1 and the lowest (9.10 cm) for T0. Seed treatment with ABA though recorded small increase in some of the seed and seedling parameters but it cannot be recommended for seed treatment of different cultivars or varieties of oil seed and pulses. Seed treatment with GA3 in most of the cases both for oil seed and pulses enhanced characters like germination percentage, seedling length, vigour index etc. than control, indicating use of GA3 for better performance of oil seed and pulses. So, seed treatment with GA3 at the concentration of 10-3 M can be recommended to farmers for better seedling growth in case of pulses and oil seeds.
