Abstract: An experiment on priming was conducted in Post Graduate Laboratory, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences (SHUATS), Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh during 2016 - 2017 on wheat K8962. The seeds are treated with different chemicals like (KNO3 1%) (KMNO4 1%), (MgSO4 1%) and (GA3 100 ppm). The treated seeds are soaked for 6hrs and dried at ambient conditions for assessment of seed germination, shoot length, root length, seedling length, seedling fresh matter and dry matter, seedling vigour index I and II, where data was subjected to factorial experiment laid out in completely randomized design. Germination percentage, root length, shoot length, seedling length, seedling dry weight, Seed vigour index I and II. Among the treatments (GA3100 ppm) (T4) recorded higher germination percent shoot length, root length, seedling length, fresh weight, dry weight, vigour index I, vigour index II.
