The experiment was conducted in post graduate Seed Testing Laboratory and field, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.) during Rabi season 2019-2020, in order to standardize the suitable pre-sowing seed treatment of Yellow mustard(T-151).Different pre-sowing seed treatments with T0-Unprimed (Control), T1- KNO3 (3%), T2- KNO3 (5%), T3- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG6000) @ 5%, T4- Polyethylene Glycol (PEG6000) @ 10%, T5– Moringa leaf Extract @ 5%, T6– Moringa leaf Extract @ 10%, T7– Pungam leaf Extract @ 5%, T8– Pungam leaf Extract @ 10%, T9- Trichoderma viride @ 1%, T10- Trichoderma viride @ 3%, T11- Azosperilium @ 1% and T12- Azosperilium @ 3%.It was found that all Pre-sowing seed treatment with Azosperilium (3%) followed by KNO3 (5%), Trichoderma Viride (3%), PEG6000 (10%) and Pungam leaf extract (5%), significantly increased the germination percentage and plant growth of yellow mustard comparison to control. Pre-sowing seed treatment with Trichoderma Viride and Azosperilium showed maximum increase in germinability, vigour of yellow mustard seeds and found to be lowest in control seeds. Pre-sowing seed treatments of the mustard seeds for 8 hrs, in which Trichoderma Viride give best result to enhanced germinability, seed vigour and yielding.

Key words: Yellow mustard seeds, KNO3, PEG6000, Moringa leaf extract, Pungam leaf extract, Trichoderma and Azosperilium,
