Seed treatment and Seed hardening

Friday, July 3, 2009

Seed treatment:
For 1 Kg of seeds mix 4 gms of Dhiram ( Mancozeb) (OR)
2 gms of Carbendazim (Bavistin) (OR)
4 gms of Trichoderma Viridi (Or)
10 gms of Pseudomonus

Seed hardening:
This is to increase number of roots and thereby to increase the yield.
Process: Soak the selected seeds in 0.5% Calcium chloride solution for 6 hours. Remove the seeds and spread on a wet gunny and cover it with another wet gunny for 24 hours. Then dry it in shadow place and give seed treatment using chemical fungicides or bio fertilizers.
