Abstract: The storage experiment was conducted at Department of Seed Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, UAS, Raichur, to know the effect of seed priming treatments on storability of kabuli chickpea. The experiment consists of seven treatments and four replications in Complete Randomized Design, seed treated with mancozeb 50% + carbendazim 25% at 3 g/kg of seed recorded significantly higher germination (85.00%), shoot length (5.38 cm), root length (13.31 cm), seedling vigour index (1589), lowest electrical conductivity (0.742 dSm-1) and moisture content (7.65%) at the end of ninth month of storage.
