Freshly harvested seeds of three genotype of Brinjal were collected from the Meerut District (U.P.) to determine relationship between the viability of seeds and the electrical conductivity of seeds. Seeds were divided into 3 genotypes of Brinjal seeds. Viability of Brinjal seed was found to be critically influenced by Electrical Conductivity of freshly harvested seeds at different level of Electrical Conductivity. The present result there by confirms the recalcitrant nature of Brinjal seeds step in the retention of Brinjal seed viability. As such, if the initial seed Electrical Conductivity is high, germination may take place during storage itself, and if too low, the final seed Electrical Conductivity in a particular treatment may fall below the desirable Electrical Conductivity range resulting in the higher viability. Result shows that Bio-Black Beauty genotypes having highest viability of Brinjal seeds and moderate value of viability is shown by Utkarsha and lowest shown by Bhima Brinjal seeds.
