Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to investigate effect of micronutrients (ZnSO4, MnSO4 and FeSO4) as pre-sowing seed treatment of Peela Raya (Brassica carianata L.). Seed treatments comprised of control (un-soaked), 12 hours soaking of seed in distilled water and in solutions of 0.5 M FeSO4, 0.5 M MnSO4 and 0.5 M ZnSO4. The soaked seed was then dried under the shade for 12 hours before sowing. The results showed that yield parameters such as number of primary branches per plant, plant height at maturity, days to 50% flowering, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod were affected to a considerable extent. Seeds treated with ZnSO4 gave the highest values of yield parameters.
