Abstract:

Five varieties of Barley viz., PL-751, VLB-56, RD-2668, K-713 and DWR-52 were conditioned to 20%  moisture content (mc) and subjected to Controlled Deterioration (CD) test at 45˚C  for 48 and 96 hours, and were analyzed  for various physiological parameters to determine the changes after CD. A rapid decline was observed in germination, speed and seedling vigour in all the varieties with increasing duration of CD. Significant differences among the varieties were also observed in all the traits. Seeds aged for 48 and 96 hours deteriorated progressively with 20% moisture content at 45˚C which indicates that, physiological changes occur in the seeds under the combination of increasing temperature and moisture content. The extent of deterioration differed in different cultivars indicates the differences among the cultivars and their tolerance or susceptibility to storage conditions.
