A lab experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of Atonik as seed treatment on germination, establishment, growth and various biochemical parameters of cotton and tomato. Seed treatment of Atonik at 3 ppm in both cotton and tomato was found to be best in recording maximum germination, establishment and enzyme activity on concentration basis. The increase in seedling physiological parameters may be correlated with internal auxin content.
