In this study the data pertaining to effect of five botanicals on Vivek 27 variety seed quality parameter of Vivek 27 variety revealed that seed treatment with Neem+ Tulsi, Neem+ Onion, Neem+ Garlic, Neem + Ginger were significantly superior over control. Neem extract seed treatment with combination other botanicals showed values range of per cent germination 91.00±3.83 (Neem+ Ginger) to 98.00±3.21 (Neem+ Tulsi), fresh weight (g) 8.47±0.63 (Neem+ Garlic) to 13.06±0.59 (Neem+ Tulsi), dry weight (g) 2.52±0.16 (Neem+ Garlic) to 3.70±0.15 (Neem+ Tulsi), and seedling vigour index- dry weight 232.49±33.02 (Neem+ Ginger) to 358.95±15.45 (Neem+ Tulsi) at ratio 1:1, 2:1 and 1:2. However, Neem+Ginger ratio (2:1) and (1:2) minimum values of per cent germination 93±3.83 and 91.00±3.83, fresh weight (g) 8.78±1.86 and 8.67±1.98, dry weight (g) 2.60±0.47 and 2.57±0.50 and seedling vigour index- dry weight 232.49±33.02 and 232.49±53.50, were showed. The botanical extracts are cheaper and eco-friendly practice for the control of seed-borne pathogens of maize.
