Abstract: The experiment was conducted to study the effect of seed treatment with fungicide, insecticide and bioagents on storability of chilli Cv. Byadagi kaddi during 2013-14 at Seed Research Laboratory, Department of Seed Science and Technology, College of agriculture, Dharwad. The seeds were treated with (T2) Carbendizum 50 W.P. @ 2 g/kg of seeds; (T3) Tebuconazole 2.5% D.S. @ 2 g/kg of seeds ; (T4) Imidachloprid 70 W.S. @ 10 g/kg of seed ; (T5) Thiomethoxam 25 W.G. @ 2 g/kg of seeds ; (T6) Trichoderma harzianum @ 2 g/kg of seed ;(T7) Pacilomyces lilacinas @ 2 g/kg of seeds ; (T8) : T2+ T3 ; (T9) : T2 + T4 ; (T10) : T2+ T5 ; (T11) : T2 + T6 ; (T12) : T2 + T7 ; (T13) : T3 + T4 ; (T14) : T3 + T5 ; (T15) : T3 + T6 ; (T16) : T3 + T7 ; and untreated control (T1) , and were packed in aluminium pouch. At the end of twelve months of storage, the seeds treated with combination of carbendizum and Imidachloprid (T9) recorded higher germination (82.15%), root length (8.58 cm), shoot length (5.79 cm), seedling dry weight (38.91 mg), vigour index (1194), field emergence (30.17%), seed weight (0.426 g), and lower electrical conductivity of seed leachate (2.019 dSm-1), moisture content (7.88%), pathogen infection (7.99 %), mobilization efficiency (92.43%) compared to control 75.01%, 5.55 cm, 3.60 cm, 31.34 mg, 681, 26.03%, 0.261g, 2.267 dSm-1, 8.10%, 10.02%, 0.261g, 98.83% respectively. The combination of carbendizum and Imidachloprid (T9) showed better nursery performance with highest plant height (13.43 cm, 29.29 cm at 30, 60 DAS, respectively) and number of branches per plant (8.04, 18.19 at 30, 60 DAS respectively), as compared to the untreated control (T1).
