Abstract

An investigation was carried out to evaluate the seed quality parameters of DHH-543 as influenced by planting ratio and staggered sowing of male parent. Among the planting ratios, the seed quality parameters such as seed index, root, shoot length, seedling dry weight and vigour index were significantly higher in 2:1 ratio. While, among the staggered sowings, staggered sowing of male (25%. each) along with, one, two and three weeks later than female recorded significantly higher seed quality parameters compared to other staggered sowings. However, the germination percentage and germination rate index were not significantly influenced by planting ratio and staggered sowing of male parent.
