Effect of harvesting stages, seed extraction and drying methods on seed quality of brinjal hybrid



Crop Research 33(1-3): 129-133



The results revealed that fruits turned to full yellow colour recorded significantly highest germination percentage, root length, shoot length, seedling vigour index and seedling dry weight (82.49%, 7.75 cm, 6.78 cm, 1229 and 15.16 mg, respectively) compared to fruit turning to just yellow colour (75.80%, 8.00 cm, 6.56 cm, 1091 and 12.60 mg, respectively) in brinjal. Extraction of seeds from wet fruits and shade drying recorded highest germination percentage, root length, shoot length, seedling vigour index and seedling dry weight (85.47%, 8.78 cm, 7.51 cm, 1366 and 17.04 mg, respectively) compared to extraction of seeds from rotting stage and drying (73.50%, 7.58 cm, 5.68 cm, 871 and 10.49 mg, respectively).
