In the present investigation rice genotypes HUBR 10-9 and HUR 105 were selected to see the effect of Hydro and hormonal seed priming on germination of rice. Seeds of selected genotypes were primed with distilled water (hydro) and six different concentrations of kinetin (hormonal). Different germination parameters, such as germination percentage, vigor index, α amylase activity, soluble and insoluble sugar content were measured at different study hours during germination. Among the various used concentrations 5 ppm of Kinetin was performed best except insoluble sugar in respect to other concentrations as well as hydro primed and non primed control sets in both the varieties.
Key words: Seed priming; Germination percentage; α Amylase activity.
