A laboratory study was conducted at All India Co-ordinated Research Project on Agro forestry, Zonal Agriculture Research Station, University of agricultural sciences, GKVK, Bengaluru to study the influence of nano boron as boron nutrient source on groundnut seed germination and seedling vigour as well as to standardize the concentration of nano boron for seed priming. There were six treatments laid out in completely randomized design with four replications. The results showed that, The higher germination (96.7 %), root length (8.30 cm and 8.90 cm), shoot length (3.20 cm and 3.46 cm) and seedling vigour index (1112 and 1195) were recorded respectively at 10 and 20 DAS,when groundnut seeds primed with nano boron at 300 ppm for about 15 minutes.
