The Lab experiment was conducted at Laboratory conditions,Department of Genetics and Plant Bredding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Uttar Pradesh during Rabi 2017 - 2018 with Wheat variety (RAJ-6560).Influence of Pre-Sowing Treatments on Germination and Seedling vigour of Wheat with eleven treatments and four replications for each treatment including control were laid out in complete randomized Design. Aiming to assess the potential of halo, hydro and hardening seed treatments in improving seed quality and to assess the effect of magnetic water on Wheat seeds. By using different Organic leaf extract and Inorganic chemicals such as Tulasi leaf extract @ 5%, Neem leaf extract @5%, Cacl2 @ (4%), KNO3 @ (5%), KCL @ (1%), Nacl @ (1%), Cacl2@ (1%), KH2PO4 (1000ppm), and Hydro priming, magnetic water. The seeds primed with Organic neem leaf extract (5% solution) for 8hrs was superior as it retained germination percentage, germination index, speed of germination, shoot length, seedling length, seedling fresh weight, seedling dry weight, vigour indices. Root length is found superior in seeds primed with magnetic water apart from leaf extract (5% solution) i.e. tulasi leaf extract and cacl2 (1% solution) for 8hrs are also found superior over unprimed seeds (control).
Key words: Wheat, Organic leaf extract, Neem leaf extract, Tulasi leaf extract, Inorganic chemicals, CACL2, KNO3, KCL, NaCL, KH2PO4, Hydro priming, magnetic water, Seedling vigour
