Halo Priming of Seeds

V. Manonmani, M. Ameer Junaithal Begum and M. Jayanthi

Seed priming is a commercially used technique for improving seed germination and vigour. It is a technique which involves uptake of water by the seed followed by drying to initiate the early events of germination upto the point of radicle emergence. The benefits include rapid, uniform and increased germination, improved seedling vigour and growth under a broad range of environments resulting in better stand establishment. The common feature in these priming is the controlled uptake of water. Also, the seeds used for priming elicit specific subcellular responses. This review article summarises the recent information available on the various physiological and subcellular processes associated with priming which lead to seed enhancement.
