The seeds of maize, paddy and sunflower were treated with Triacontanol (tria), a natural primary alcohol of plants, and seed quality parameters were evaluated. All three concentrations (1, 5, and 10 ppm) of tria significantly increased the percentage germination of seeds over control. However, 10 ppm gave best results. Vigour index of maize seeds treated with 5 and 10 ppm was not significantly different but it was significant over 1 ppm treatment and controls. In paddy and sunflower, 10 ppm tria was superior over other concentrations and controls, in enhancing the seed vigour. In paddy the three concentrations of tria had same effect on field emergence but it was significant over controls. In sunflower, and maize the field emergence was highest in seeds treated with 10 ppm tria over other two concentrations and control. Triacontanol had no effect on seed mycoflora.
