Studies on seed colouring in redgram, blackgram and bengalgramPlant Pathology and Microbiology Publications
AbstractThe investigations on the effect of seed colouring of redgram, blackgram and bengalgram seeds encompassing 25 dyes were conducted to identify non-deleterious and deleterious dyes based on their effect on seed quality. The dyes namely Rhodamine-B, Fuchsine and Titan yellow for redgram, Rhodamine-B, Fuchsine and Phenol red and Rhodamine-B, Crystal violet, Titan yellow for bengalgram were found to be the best dyes for seen colouring at 0.75% concentration. In this paper we discuss developing colour standards for redgram, blackgram and bengalgram seeds and their resultant implications for Indian seed industry.
