Abstract:

An experiment was carried out on Storability of Onion seeds as influencedby varieties, date of sowing and storage containers (Allium cepaL.)one of the major limitations in onion cultivation in India is lack of good quality seed at the time of sowing production and make available quality seeds are of paramount importance to sustain onion production in the country. Onion is a poor storer, during storage period, per cent germination was highest in 10th November produce crop. Among the varieties, ArkaNiketan recorded higher germination and it was lowest in ArkaBindu. During storage period percent germination, seedling length, vigour index, field emergence was highest in the seed stored in polythene bag and it was lowest in the seed stored in cloth bag. The electrical conductivity of seed leachate was found to increase over the storage period in all the dates of planting. Among the varieties, E.C. of seed leachate was highest in ArkaBindu and it was lowest in ArkaNiketan.


Keywords: Onion varieties, different planting dates and Storage containers
