Processed seed of cowpeas Pusa-Do-Fasli was manually separated into large, medium large, medium and small size seeds, having 1000-seed wt of 89, 75, 64 and 49 g, resp. 1000-seed wt of the processed bulk seed was 70 g. Less time was required for germination initiation of medium seeds and small seeds (21 h in each case) than of large seeds (28 h), medium large seeds (27 h) and bulk seed (25 h).
