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