Abstract

A Study was conducted at Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Faculty of Agriculture, Annamalai University Annamalai Nagar to standardize the dosage of flyash for seed pelleting in sesame with different concentrations ranging from 25 g to 300 g with 3 doses of gum as adhesive material. Based on the results, it was found that seed quality charecters increased along with increased dosage of flyash treatment in general and flyash treatment @ 250 g.kg-1 and with 10% or 5 % gum Arabica as adhesive material was identified as the best dose for seed pelleting in sesame.

Keywords

Fly ash Gum Arabica Seed pelleting Sesame.
