Abstract:
Field pea is an important winter season annual crop in India grown in semi-arid and tropical regions. The major problem which limits the field pea production is crop establishment under rainfed condition. The aim of present investigation was to find out the effect of seed priming treatment of seed yield and quality attributes of field pea. Seeds of Arkel variety were used for seed enhancement treatments like fungicidal, hormonal priming, nutrient priming, biological agents, hydro-priming. It was observed that seed priming with molybdenum as sodium molybdate @ 500 ppm in combination with <em>T. harzianum </em>@ 15 g/kg seed followed by seed priming with sodium molybdate @ 500 ppm alone was found to significantly enhance germination %, seed vigour, plant biomass, number of pods per plant and seed yield per plant. The major constraints of good crop establishment are low quality seed in addition to lack of soil moisture.
