Successful crop establishment and high seedling vigor are considered as decisive factors for the success of most field crops, as these parameters contribute to uniform plant growth and maturity, better competition with weeds, and high productivity. Abiotic stresses adversely affect plant growth and productivity. In recent years, seed priming has been developed as an indispensable method to produce tolerant crop plants against various stresses. Seed priming is a method which is potentially able to promote rapid and more uniform seed germination and seedling growth in adverse environmental conditions and enhancing yield of a certain field crops. Seed priming is the cellular state in which the harmful effects of abiotic stress factors in plants are hindered by pre exposure to a stimulus, thus resulting in greater survival. It is becoming increasingly evident that different seed priming techniques in plants can improve the tolerance of crops to adverse environmental conditions. Generally seed priming shows potential strategy for increasing crop production and management in adverse environmental conditions. Seed priming for enhanced resistance to of adverse environmental conditions obviously is operating various pathways involved in different metabolic processes. The seedlings emerging from primed seeds showed early and uniform germination. Moreover, the overall growth of seedling and plant is improved due to the seed-priming treatments, so that farmers or any of crop producers should be practice and apply the science of seed priming for maximizing crop yield in any of adverse environmental conditions

Keywords: Seed priming, seed germination, seedling growth.
