Pre-Sowing seed treatment with vam in French bean: response for vegetable production

Author(s):

PG Devhade, AK Basu and Nation Chamling

Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted on pre-sowing seed treatment of seeds of eight French bean genotypes <em>viz</em>., Sonali, Selection 9, Deepali, Abhay, Victoria, Arka Suvidha, Arka Anoop and Falguni was done with VAM (<em>Vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza</em>) and crop was grown from both treated and untreated control seeds during winter season of 2012-13 and 2013-14 following Split-Plot Design with three replications. Significant variation among the genotypes was consistent for vegetable pod yield and its attributes <em>viz</em>., plant height, number of branches, number of pods per plant, pod length and breadth, single pod weight and vegetable pod yield per plant. Pre-sowing seed treatment with VAM also exerted significant influence for creating variation in all these parameters studied. Genotypes x treatment interactions were also significant for these characters excepting vegetable pod breadth in both the years as well as in pooled condition.
