Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at Seed Quality Research Laboratory of National Seed Project, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during 2016-2017 to evaluate the effect of packaging materials and forms on storability of groundnut Cv. G2-52.The groundnut is stored both in the form of pods and kernels, and they were stored in four different packaging materials like PICS (Perdue improved crop storage) bag, HDPE (High density polythene bag) bag, polythene bag (700 gauge), and gunny bag. Among the interactions T1 (pod stored in PICS bag) showed maximum seed quality parameters like germination (81.17 %), seedling vigour index (1675), 100 seed weight (36.19 g), mobilization efficiency (8.81 %). Whereas the lowest germination (55.17), seedling vigour index (815), 100 seed weight (31.15 g), mobilization efficiency (7.40 %) were recorded in T8 (kernel stored in gunny bag) at the eight month of storage period.


Keywords: Seedling vigour index, Mobilization efficiency, 100 seed weight, PICS bag
