Seed Priming Methods: Application in Field Crops and Future Perspectives
Asian Journal of Research in Crop Science,
To reach in good plant stand, the life cycle of plants is faced with different critical stages such as uneven seed germination, poor and early seedling growth which ultimately results in low crop yield. It is well known that seed priming enhances germination, reduces seedling emergence time, and improves yield and yield contributing characters of plants. Seed priming is a physiological technique of seed hydration and drying to improve the metabolic process prior to germination to fasten the germination, seedling growth, and crop yield under normal, as well as different biotic and abiotic stress conditions. Many researchers have done a lot of research on seed priming in field crops to enhance the final yield. However, different priming methods and their application in field crops are poorly described. Therefore, this review paper discusses seed priming and its different methods and their application in field crops as well as future perspectives of seed priming.
