Title : A Review on Seed Pelleting in Increasing the Production Potential of Pulses

Abstract :

Seed pelleting is the process in which inert materials are added to seed with an objective to improve seed placement, germination and crop stand and to reduce seed rate and to impart protection against various biotic and abiotic stresses specially in case of pulses as few of them have very small seeds which are difficult to handle otherwise. In present scenario pulses are proving to be an essential immunity booster as they are rich source of proteins and other essential nutrients. In Indian prospects the major constraints in pulse production are their low production and productivity. Thus, seed pelleting has vast potential to overcome these issues because of above stated advantages.
