Abstract
EFFECT OF PRE-STORAGE AND PRE SOWING TREATMENTS ON PERFORMANCE OF AGEING B. BAMBOS SEEDS

Geetika Singh* and Richa

ABSTRACT

Invigouration treatments are beneficial treatments applied to the seeds that improves the germination or facilitates the delivery of seed and other material required at the time of sowing. The aim of the study was to improve the performance of Bambusa bambos seeds which have a very short viability of 1-3 months. When seeds deteriorate, they lose vigour and become more sensitive to stresses upon germination. Eventually seeds lose the ability to germinate. With ageing seeds loses viability. Non availability of viable seed is a major drawback in enhancing productivity. It was found that bamboo with initial germination of 80.2% which reduces to zero after 12 months of ageing improve the germination upto 88% with the help of various treatments. Various pre sowing i.e Infusion, Osmopriming and Fortification and pre storage treatments i.e Pelleting and Hardening were given to the seeds. Best presowing treatment was found to be with GA3 at 50 ppm that shows the germination percentage of 26% upto 18 months of ageing as compared to untreated seeds which loses complete viability at 12 months of ageing. While the best pre storage treatment was found to be 10% turmeric conc which shows 24.9% germination after 18 months of storage. Both pre storage and pre sowing treatments were effective in improving the viability of bamboo seeds. Thus suggesting that invigouration treatments can improve viability upto large extent.

Keywords: Invigouration, viability, hardening, pelleting, osmopriming, fortification, infusion.
