Effect of bio-primed green gram (Vigna radiata L.) seed in corallina berteroi seaweed liquid fertilizer on germination and seedling growth


Megha P Pandya, Shailesh K Mehta

In the present study the effect of Corallina berteroi Montagne seaweed liquid fertilizer was evaluated on the Green gram seed germination and seedlings growth. The seeds were primed in different concentration such as 0.2%, 0.5%, 0.7%,1.0%,1.5, 2.0% and control (without treatment) with different time period (0h, 1h, 2h, 3h, 4h, 5h, 6h, 12h and 24h) in this seaweed extract. After 5 days some seed germination parameter like % germination, root length, shoot length, seedling length, seed vigour index, wet weight, dry weight, % moisture content, No. of lateral roots were observed. In this study, seeds primed with Corallina berteroi extracts at 1.0% & 1.5% enhanced germination parameters. After 60 days in field trial 0.2% concentration seaweed extract enhanced some growth parameter like No. of branches per plant, No. of leaves per plant, total height of the plant, No. of flower per plant, No. of pod per plant, No. of seed per pod, length of the pod and leaf area were observed. The objective of this study is to improve the seed germination, growth, yield as well as quality for better production and process.
