Determination of Seed Germination of Fresh and Infested Stored Mungbean Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek Seeds by using Different Method

Saurabh Singh, Asha Sinha and Richa Raaj

Abstract

Mungbean seeds genotype HUM-4 and HUM-12 were infested with four dominant fungi viz., Alternaria alternata, Aspergillus niger and Penicillium citrum and Fusarium moniliformae as well as fresh seeds were used to test germination ability of mungbean seeds by using different methods viz., Blotter methods, Multi-pot trey methods, Earthen pot method and Rolled paper towel method. Result showed that all infested seeds were found to be significantly reduced the germination of seeds. In Blotter condition, maximum germination was recorded (93.30%) in genotype HUM-12 followed by (90.35%) in Genotype HUM-4. In paper towel methods, freshly harvested mungbean seeds showed maximum seed germination (90.00%) in genotype HUM-12 followed by (88.67%) in Genotype HUM-4. In multipot trey method, freshly harvested mungbean seed showed maximum seed germination (84.12%) in genotype HUM-12 followed by (83.33%) in Genotype HUM-4. In earthen pot methods freshly harvested mungbean seed showed maximum seed germination (87.30%) in genotype HUM-12 followed by (85.23%) in Genotype HUM-4. Aspergillus niger infested seeds showed lowest germination followed by Penicillium rubrum infested seeds.
