Abstract


A field experiment was conducted at Main Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during Rabi 2004 to study the effect of different pre-sowing treatments on seed quality and field performance in brinjal hybrid. The field experiments were laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design. All pre-sowing treatments recorded significantly higher seed quality, growth and yield parameters over control. However, GA3 (200ppm) recorded significantly higher fruit yield (15.76t/ha) than the other pre-sowing treatments except KNO3 (2%), cytozyme (0.5%) and PEG 6000(-1.0MPa). Similarly initial seed quality, growth and yield components were significantly higher in GA3 (200ppm) whereas control recorded significantly lower seed quality, growth and yield parameters
