Seed storage is a vital and very important process for agriculture, as it not only protects seeds for the next season for the plantation purpose but also maintain seed quality for the commercial purposes. Among the oilseed crops grown in India, soybean (Glycine max) and niger (Guizotia abyssinica) has of late emerged as having high growth potential. One of the major problems associated with the seed production of soybean and niger in India, is the maintenance of the seed viability up to the prescribed germination standard from harvest till next sowing season. Oilseeds are some of the important agricultural produce that are commercially viable and hence need proper care and handling of seeds during storage. The present review highlights some of the key parameters that affect the storability of oil seeds especially soybean and niger.

Keywords: Oilseeds, Storage, seed vigor, Soybean, Glycine max, Niger, Guizotia abyssinica.
