Abstract:

China aster [Callistephus chinensis (Linn.) Ness] belongs to the family Asteraceae, is an important commercial ornamental annual grown in many parts of the world for cut flower, loose flower, bedding plant. The objective of this study was to evaluate the trend in seed deterioration of China aster during storage. The experiments were conducted during 2017-18 in the Seed Testing laboratory, BCKV, Mohanpur, Nadia, West Bengal, India. Seven China aster varieties were store in different storage conditions like Freeze condition (T1), Aluminum foil (T2), Polythene packet (T3), Earthen pot (T4), Cloth bag (T5) and Brown paper (T6). Deterioration pattern were observed by checking germination percentage and vigour index change at just after harvesting and every two months interval upto eight months of storage that means the next growing season. Freeze condition is proved to be the best than the other conditions as germination percentage (71.83, 66.93, 63.77 and 61.10, respectively) and vigour index (465.28, 433.88, 414.43 and 450.86 respectively) recorded highest at two months, four months, six months and eight months after storage. So, the Freeze condition can be recommended for storing seeds of China aster with maintenance of better seed quality storage.
