Effect of different seed sizes on seed quality, crop growth and seed yield of mesta (Hibiscus cannabinus) varieties


, : Effect of different seed sizes on seed quality, crop growth and seed yield of mesta (Hibiscus cannabinus) varieties. Annals of Agricultural Research 14(3): 366-368

In a field experiment during the kharif seasons of 1990-91 at Gossasigaon, Assam, seeds of H. cannabinus H.C. 583, M.T.150 or Local were graded into large (retained by 9/64 inch diameter sieve), small (passed through 9/64 inch diameter sieve) or ungraded. Mean seed yields from these 3 grades were 487, 338 and 407 kg/ha, respectively.
