The effect on given experiment was carried out to investigate the “Pre-sowing seed treatments with Botanicals, Magnetic and Electric on seedling characters of Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.)” in the post graduate experiment laboratory of seed science at Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, SHUATS, Prayagraj (UP). The different seed priming techniques on germination and seedling characters of pearl millet an experiment was conducted in 2019-2020, the experiment based on complete randomized design (CRD). Seed were primed with three different method (T0- control (unprimed), T1- curry leaf extract(3%) for 8 hours, T2- neem leaf extract(3%) for 8 hours, T3- coconut water(3%) for 8 hours, T4- magnetic field(100 gauss) for 30 minutes, T5- magnetic field(150 gauss) for 30 minutes, T6- magnetic field(200 gauss) for 30 minutes, T7- electric field(100 mA) for 1 minute, T8- electric field(150 mA) for 1 minute, T9- electric field(200 mA) for 1 minute). The results revealed that, all the priming treatments showed significance difference with control and the highest germination percent, speed of germination, germination energy (%), root length (cm), shoot length (cm), seedling length (cm), seedling fresh weight (gm), seedling dry weight (gm), vigour index I, vigour index II, test weight (gm), moisture content (%) and protein content (%) were observes in coconut water@ 3% compare to control. Among the treatments coconut water @ 3% was found to be the best priming treatment. The study helps to improve the quality of seeds with the help of seed priming treatments which are cost effective and eco-friendly sources.
