Cite article:- Anuradha R., Balamurugan P., Srimathi P., Sumathi S. (2024). INFLUENCE OF SEED COAT COLOUR VARIATIONS ON SEED QUALITY IN BENGALGRAM CV. CO 4 (CICER ARIETINUM L.). Legume Research. 32(2): 136-138. doi: .
The seeds of bengalgram cv. CO 4 were visually colour graded into light brown, brown and dark
brown seeds and were evaluated for the seed and seedling quality parameters. Significant differences
were observed among the colour grades for germination, seedling length, vigour index, protein
content, a-amylase and dehydrogenase activity. The results indicated that the light brown seeds
were superior to other colour grades for all the seed quality parameters.
