Abstract

Seed pelleting studies in Cenchrus revealed that seed pelleted with CuSO4 registred miximum germination, Seeds pelleted with DAP @ 60 g kg-1 of seeds in combination with FeSO4 or ZnSO4 @ 10g kg-1 of seeds registred the highest dry matter production and vigour index values, eventhough the field emergence was higher with seeds treated with CuSO4.
