The experiment was conducted at Central Research field of Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.) during Rabi season 2019-2020, in order to standardize the seed invigoration treatment of Lentil (Variety PL-406). Different invigoration treatment with control (Untreated) were evaluated viz
- Indole Butaric Acid @0.5%, T2
-Indole Butaric Acid @1.0%, T3
-Rhizobium Culture @3%, T4
-Rhizobium Culture @5%, T5
-Zinc Sulphate @0.5%, T6
-Zinc Sulphate @1.0%, T7
-Fish Amino Acid @50 ppm, T8
-Fish Amino Acid @75 ppm, T9
-Guava Leaf Extract@50 ppm, T10
-Guava Leaf Extract@75 ppm, T11
-Panchagavya @50 ppm, T12
-Panchagavya @75 ppm. It was found that all the seed treatments showed significance difference with the control except no. of seed per pod. Seed treatment increases the growth and yield of lentil seeds, significantly in field condition. T8
(Fish amino acid @ 75ppm) followed by T4
(Rhizobium culture @ 5 %) showed maximum increase in growth and yield of lentil seeds. Seed treatment on field condition gives best result in Fish amino acid @ 75ppm and found to be lowest in Control (untreated). These conclusions are based on the results of six months investigation and therefore further investigation is needed to arrive at valid recommendations. The treatments of lentil crop with Fish amino acid is eco-friendly and economic in use.
