Abstract:

The present paper deals with the changes in quality parameters of seeds with increased storage period of buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculenum Moench). Seeds from 20 buckwheat genotypes were stored at normal room temperature and accessed for every three months interval for germination (%), seedling length (cm), seedling dry weight (g), seed vigour Index – I and II. The results depicted that there was decline in quality parameters of the genotypes with the increased storage period. The genotype G13 after 12 months storage period recorded highest seed vigour index-I (1419.33) and the lowest was recorded by G20(1092.90). The highest vigour Index-II after 12 months storage period was recorded by genotype G18 (5.32) and lowest by the G12 (2.47).


Keywords: Quality parameter, Decline, Storage period and Vigour index
