Physiological effect of seed treatments with kinetin on seedling growth under laboratory and field conditions in Green gram
Sakdeo Babita Marutirao
Immersion of seeds in solutions containing PGRs has been suggested by various workers to enhance seed germination and emergence potential, under adverse growing or environmental conditions, or alternatively under satisfactory conditions using seeds of impaired germinating quality.
Kinetin enhanced the germination ability of the seed under high temperature conditions (McCoy and Harrington, 1970) as well as under drought stress conditions (Kaufman and Ross, 1970).
Interest in the use of growth regulators in crop production arises from the beliefs of plant physiologists that maximum levels of plant productivity Kinetin promote seed germination. kinetin has several form kin 10-1, kin 10-2, kin 10-3…..so on. All the Gibberellins are able to promote either stem elongation or cell division although their relative effectiveness may be different.
Studied for determining effect of different concentration of kinetin in Wheat on percentage germination and seedling growth in terms of shoot and root lengths and dry weight distribution. Under Laboratory and Field conditions.
