Seed coating especially film-coating, is one such technique which has gained commercial importance owning to its practical utility as an effective delivery system for seed protectant and fortifying chemicals. Seeds of soybean cv. JS-335 were coated with polymer in combination with fungicide (thiram), insecticide (imidacloprid), bioagent (Trichoderma viride) and maintained untreated seeds (control). After seed treatment, the seeds were sown in the field with four replications adopting randomized block design in order to find out the effect of seed treatments on field emergence, plant biometrics viz., plant height, disease incidence at different stages (25 DAS, 50 DAS and 75 DAS), 100 seed weight, number of pods per plant and yield per hectare under field conditions were recorded. Yield per hectare was increased in seed treatments with polymer + thiram + imidacloprid + T. viride (18.4 q ha-1) or polymer + thiram + imidacloprid (17.78 q ha-1). The additional increase in yield per hectare over control were 5.2, 4.58, 3.24, 4.43, 1.68 q in polymer + thitam + imidacloprid + T. viride (polymer @ 2 ml kg-1, thiram @ 3 ml kg-1, imidacloprid @ 2.5 ml kg-1 and T. viride @ 10 g kg-1), polymer + thitam + imidacloprid, polymer + thitam, polymer + imidacloprid and polymer, respectively.

Keywords: Soybean, Polymer, Thiram, Imidacloprid and T. viride.
