Effect of different seed vigour enhancement techniques on hybrid maize (Zea mays L.)

Effect of different seed vigour enhancement techniques on hybrid maize (Zea mays L.)

Pakistan Journal of Agricultural Sciences 39(2): 109-112

The present research studies were conducted under laboratory and field conditions in Pakistan. Double cross hybrid maize (cv. Monsanto-7878) seeds were subjected to hydropriming, osmotic priming (PEG-10 000), GA3, matriconditioning with compost, press mud or gunny bag for 24 h in the laboratory.
