Abstract

The field experiment was conducted during kharif 2003 and 2004 at College of Agriculture,
Dharwad. The results revealed that pollination at 9:00 am recorded significantly highest germination,
root length, shoot length, vigour index and seedling dry weight followed by pollination at 11.00 am
compared to 1:00 pm pollination time. Irrespective of the pollination time, 4:1 crossing ratio recorded
significantly maximum germination percentage, root length, shoot length, vigour index and seedling
dry weight as compared to the 10:1 crossing ratio.
