Okra seeds produced after pre-sowing bio-priming with Trichoderma viride and Pseudomonas fluorescencewere subjected to laboratory testing at Directorate of Research, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Kalyani, Nadia, West Bengalfor its quality assessment through germination, seedling length, vigour index, protein content and carbohydrate content. Significant differences among the varieties as well as treatments were observed for all the parameters studied, but variety x bio-priming interaction was insignificant for germination (%) and carbohydrate content. Seeds bio-primed with Trichoderma viride for var. Japani Jhar (86.83%), Ramya (19.7cm) and Arka Anamika, (1544.4) significantly enhance the germination (%), seedling length and vigour index respectively, whereas protein and carbohydrate was observed more in Arka Anamika and Ramya with same treatment. Greater influence of Trichoderma viride for enhanced all quality parameters could be recognized in comparison to that of Pseudomonas fluorescens and control.

Keywords: Okra, Germination (%), Protein content, Trichoderma viride, Pseudomonas fluorescence
