Abstract: Seed priming with Rhizobium + Pseudomanas @ 10% for 12 hours recorded significantly higher germination percent (87%), speed of germination (77.11), shoot length (20.33 cm), root length (16.14 cm), seedling length (34.92 cm), seedling fresh weight (1200.3 mg), dry weight (150.4 mg), seedling vigour index – I (2225.37), seedling vigour index-II (11766.67). which is followed by seed priming with Rhizobium @ 10% for 12 hours (T3) and lowest was recorded in T0 (control).
