The experiments were conducted to study Influence of halopriming and organic priming on germination and seed vigour in Black gram (Vigna mungo
L.) the during 2016-2017 in the post-graduation experiment laboratory of Seed Science at the Department of Genetic and Plant Breeding, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. The seeds were treated with un-soaked seed (control), Hydro-priming (soaked with distill water for 12 hrs), Organic priming (Cow urine, Coconut water), Halopriming with KNO3
, KCl, and CaSO4
(1% solution) soaked for 12 hrs, on seed of Blackgram. KCl @1% primed seed recorded higher germination per cent (83.25%),energy of emergence (78.75), seedling length (40.30 cm), seedling dry weight (0.452 gm/10 seedlings ), vigour index I (3358.93) & vigour index II (37.66). The treatment interactions were significant & the seeds treated with KCl followed by KNO3
recorded numerically higher values compared to control.
