Sundharan M, A Kamaraj, S Swathi
The field experiment was conducted at Elumathur in Erode district, Tamil nadu, during (2019-2020) to evaluate the effect of botanical extracts on seed quality of okra cv. Aruna. Seed pelleting is commonly accompanied to make sure and increase yield in lots of agricultural crops. Genetically and physically natural seeds of aruna was treated with diverse botanical powders viz., neem leaf powder, prosopis leaf powder, pungam leaf powder, notchi leaf powder,fly ash and termite soil @ 200 g/kg seed. Observations were recorded on seed quality parameters viz., germination, root length, shoot length, dry matter production (10 seedlings) and vigour index. Primarily based on the outcomes, it turned into discovered that okra cv aruna seeds handled with fly ash powder @ 200g/kg recorded higher values of germination, root length, shoot length, dry matter production and vigour index when compared to other treatments and control.
