The present investigation was carried out to in situ study the effect of seed bio-priming with microbial inoculants on pre and post-emergence mortality, germination, shoot and root fresh weight and vigour index in tomato, brinjal, onion and chilli vegetables at College of Horticulture, S.D. Agricultural University, Jagudan (Mehsana), Gujarat, India during 2017 and 2019. Two Trichoderma spp. (T. harzianum and T. viride ), P. fluorescens and hydro priming at 6,12 and 18 hours. Among the treatments minimum pre-emergence mortality per cent (15.22,13.94,15.60 and 18.65), minimum post-emergence mortality per cent (11.50, 10.30, 10.83 and 11.60), minimum days to start germination (3.72, 4.00,4.03 and 4.03), minimum days have taken to 50 % germination (4.72, 5.33, 6.03 and 5.11), maximum final germination percentage ( 84.89, 82.36, 79.72 and 78.44), maximum root length in centimetre (15.49, 11.51, 8.64 and 15.27), maximum shoot length in centimetre ( 12.47, 9.88, 14.82 and 15.24), maximum seedling vigour index (2373.43, 1762.31, 1857.90 and 2421.31) maximum fresh root weight in gram (1.45,1.66, 1.68 and 1.46) and maximum shoot fresh weight in gram (2.01,2.47, 3.05 and 2.22) was recorded in T10 (bio priming with T. harzianumfor 12 hrs) in tomato, brinjal, onion and chilli vegetables, respectively. The present study thus reveals that seed bio priming with T. harzianum or P. fluorescens for 12 hrs. Reduced pre and post-emergence mortality, enhanced germination, root and shot fresh weight and vigour index in tomato, brinjal, onion and chilli. It is therefore suggested that before sowing tomato, brinjal, onion and chilli seed should be treated with 10 g/kg of T. harzianum or P. fluorescens in 20 ml distilled water for 12 hours.
