Abstract:

Studies on evaluation of the influence of seed fortification with inorganic nutrients as pre-sowing seed management technique expressed that KH2PO4 and KCl at 1 per cent among the nutrients (MgSO4, MnSO4, ZnSO4, FeSO4, borax) were highly suitable for invigourating the seed and seedling quality characters. The seeds were fortified in the respective solution for a duration of 16 h with equal volume of seed to solution ratio. The fortified seeds also performed better at primary and secondary nursery conditions in production of elite seedlings for transplanting to main field.
