The experiment was conducted to determine the enhancement of seedling vigour through bio priming for barnyard millet. Seeds of barnyard millet var. MDU 1 were bioprimed with water, Azophos, Pseudomonas fluroscens, PPFM and the combinations of Azophos+ Pseudomonas fluroscens at 20% concentration for 8 h. Bio- primed seeds were evaluated for its germination, seedling length, vigour index, dehydrogenase, α-amylase and microbial count. Results revealed that seeds bioprimed with Azophos+ Pseudomonas fluroscens @ 20% for 8h performed positive influence on physiological quality and biochemical parameters. In addition microbial population of 107x104 CFU g-1 of seed was observed in Azophos+ Pseudomonas fluroscens primed seeds compared to other priming treatments. These treatments can be utilized for enhancing seedling vigour in barnyard millet.
