Abstract: A field trial was conducted at Agronomic Research Area, University of Agriculture Faisalabad during August 2015, to evaluate the effect of priming and foliar applications of different growth promoting substances on sorghum. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Net plot size was 3 m × 1.8 m. The research trial was comprised of eight treatments i.e. control (no seed treatment), hydropriming, priming with CaCl2, hardening with CaCl2, priming with moringa leaves extract, priming + foliar application of CaCl2, priming + foliar application of moringa leaves extract and hardening+ foliar application of CaCl2. All the priming treatments significantly affected E50, MET, plant height, stem diameter, fresh weight of plant, dry weight of plant, number of leaves, leaf area, fresh weight of leaves, protein contents, fiber contents, total ash percentage fresh forage yield and dry matter yield of the sorghum crop. It may be concluded that seed priming along with foliar applications of growth promoting substances may serve as an appropriate treatment for accelerating the emergence as well as final yield of the crop and priming, along with foliar applications of MLE is the best choice in this regard.
