Abstract: A field study was conducted to note the effect of pre-sowing seed treatment with different micronutrient solutions i.e., water, ZnSO4, MnSO4 and FeSO4 on field emergence of Raya cv. , Peela Raya. The concentration of solution used for seed treatments was 0.5M. Seeds were soaked for 12 hours and after that these soaked seeds were dried under the shade for 12 hours before sowing. A basal fertilizer dose of 30 kg N and 30 kg P2O5 ha-1 was applied at the time of sowing. The results revealed that seedling emergence and early growth, fresh and dry weight of roots and shoots were affected significantly by these seed treatments except FeSO4 .
