Abstract :

In the present study, seeds were evaluated for their influence at laboratory condition both with existing seed treatment, seed hardening and newer seed management technique, designer seed that focused on integration of seed management techniques, pertaining to invigoration and protection, as the seed is known as the carrier of new technologies. The results of the study revealed that seeds hardened with MgSO4  100 ppm improved the germination (93 per cent) by three per cent compared to control (90 per cent), while that of designer seed (95 per cent) by five per cent. Likewise seedling vigour characters and field emergence also higher in seeds imposed with invigourative seed treatment.
