Abstract

The investigations on the effect of seed colouring on castor [Ricinus comrpunis L.), sunflower (Hefianthus annuus L.) and safflower (Carthanws tinctorius L.) 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 and Erichro black-T for castor, Rhodamine-B and Cotton blue for sunflower and Rhodamine-8, Fuchsine and Neutral red for safflower are the best dyes for seed colouring at 0.75% concentration. In this paper we discuss effect of seed colouring on seed quality of castor, sunflower and safflower seeds and their resultant implications for Indian seed industry.
