Abstract

The aim of our present study was the effect of soil drenching of propiconazole (PCZ) and Abscisic Acid (ABA) on vegetative growth, biochemical changes and antioxidant activities in seed methanolic extracts of Mucuna pruriens (MEMP). In this research we evaluated the morphological parameters like fresh and dry weight of plant, number of pods and antioxidant assay such as Total phenol, Total flavanoid, 1-diphenyl 2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH), Superoxide radical scavenging activity, Metal chelating and Ferric ion Reducing antioxidant activity(FRAP). The report shows Number of pods, Number of seeds were increased while the plant treated with PCZ than the ABA as well as control. The increased content of total phenol and flavanoids observed in treated plants than control. On the other hand the highest Superoxide radical scavenging activity, Metal Chelating activity, Ferric ion reducing antioxidant was found in PCZ treated extracts followed by ABA treated extracts and control. Based on our results it seems that PCZ considerably increased the antioxidants content than the ABA and control.
