Influence of Biopolymer Synthesized from Tamarind Seed Polysaccharide (TSP) on Seed Quality Parameters of Maize Hybrid COH(M) 8

The current study looks at the effect of a biopolymer combined from Tamarind Seed Polysaccharide (TSP) on the seed condition of a maize hybrid. The experiment was carried out in Department of Seed Science and Technology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu all along 2021. Biopolymer was synthesized from Tamarind Seed Polysaccharide (TSP) and additional with different preservatives and coated on maize children. The polymer coated seeds were judged for its corporal and biochemical parameters. The seeds were likely with four situations viz.,T0- control (untreated source), T1- biopolymer (B.P) – 10g kg-1, T2- B.P (10g) + Humic acid (0.3g) + Zimmu (Allium cepa × Allium sativum) leaf extract (0.5 ml) and T3- T2+ Ascorbic acid (0.2 g) and evaluated for children quality limits. The findings of the current investigation accompanied that T3 was significantly superior namely., greater percentage of pregnancy (95%), rate of germination (31.64), children metabolic efficiency (2.78), seedling root time (25.92 cm), seedling dash length (15.57 cm), total biomass production (9.41 g), vigour index I (3942), vigour Index-II (94.15). This situation also written greatest profit of biochemical parameters such as α-amylase (2.23), dehydrogenase (1.87 OD advantage), catalase (29.94) and peroxidase (7.00) activities. It deteriorated the percentage of abnormal seedlings (2%), dead children (3%), days to 50% germination (2.54), mean rise time (3.02) and pathogen contamination (0.25%). We concluded that T3-laminated maize seeds had improved large plant enclosed in bark and shedding leaves establishment and are urged as a pre-sowing seed treatment not living agriculture.
