The present work was done in the department of seed science and technology, CCS Haryana Agricultral University, Hisar aiming at to study the presowing treatments for improving seed quality in cotton varieties viz. RG-8, HD-123 (Gossypium arboreum), HS-6, H1098 (Gossypium hirsutum).On the basis of germination percentage each variety was divided into two lots ie. Lot A (Good),SG above 65% and Lot B (Marginal),S.G. between 50-60%.  The seeds of both lots of cultivar were treated before sowing with GA3(100ppm), Ascorbic acid (100 ppm), NaCl (100 mM), KNO3 (10 mM) and H2O + thiram @ 0.25% for 6 hours and the untreated lot act as control.  The observations recorded in the laboratory were viz., standard germination (%), radicle length (cm), plumule length (cm), vigour index-I, vigour index-II, electrical conductivity (uSimon/cm/seed) and accelerated ageing (%).  While speed of emergence and seedling establishment (%) were recorded in the field.
