Effect of seed size on germination and seed vigour in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)

Effect of seed size on germination and seed vigour in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)

Annals of Agricultural Research 15(3): 383-384

Seed germination and vigour were assessed in 13 chickpea cultivars classed as having large (18.94-24.17 g 100-seed weight), medium (15.38-18.93 g) and small (12.83-15.37 g) seeds. Emergence, germination, vigour and seedling growth were highest in the largest seeded cultivar (BDNG 358-5).
