Abstract:

The present storage study was carried out at Seed Quality and Research Laboratory, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during 2016- 2017. In this study two different seed lots were taken first seed lot having higher germination percentage and second seed lot having lower germination percentage. Seeds were dry dressed with nanoparticles of silver and iron with different concentration and kept for storage. Seed lots revealed significant variation of the seed quality and storability due to nanoparticles treatments on soybean cv. DSb-21. High vigour seed lot recorded higher seed germination and seedling vigour index-I than the low vigour seed lot at the end of storage. The nanoparticles treatment FeNPs @500 ppm which recorded significantly higher seed germination (92.5%) and seedling vigour index- I (3127) than control at the beginning, maintained the trend till the end of 10 month of storage period. The rate of reduction in quality parameters was much higher in the low vigour seed lot. The seed treatment with nanoparticles reduced the rate of deterioration of seed in the storage.
