Peanuts, which are in the legume family, have various uses. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of different priming methods on the germination characteristics of peanut seeds under salinity and non-salinity conditions. The study was conducted under laboratory conditions at Adnan Menderes University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Field Crops. In the study, the effects of four different treatments on the germination characteristics of peanut seeds under salinity and non-salinity conditions were investigated. According to the results of the study, it was observed that the values of the examined characteristics decreased in the seeds exposed to salinity. It has been determined that the applications are positively effective in salinity conditions. The highest values for the highest germination percentage, length of roots, and length of hypocotyl properties were obtained from the application of graphene oxide NPs under non-salinity conditions.
