Effect of seed size on seed quality and yield of blackgram (Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper)

Effect of seed size on seed quality and yield of blackgram (Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper)

Annals of Agricultural Research 15(3): 376-378

Seeds of V. mungo Matikalai were graded into large (retained on a 9/64 inch sieve), medium (retained on a 8/64 inch sieve) and small, or ungraded. Large, medium and small seeds comprised 10.8, 55.2 and 34% of the seed sample, respectively. In a laboratory assessment, emergence, vigour index and seedling growth were greatest from the large seeds, while emergence was lowest from ungraded seeds.
