Abstract:

In this study experiments was conducted to evaluate the effect of augmented storage of seed. Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) is one of the world s most imperative oil seed crops, storage of which is one of the foremost concerns. The objective of this work was to evaluate the effects of moisture content and electrical conductivity (EC) as well as the germination index in the four storage patterns of Sesame seed. Based on the obtained results, it can be concluded that the electrical conductivity test has not shown to be a good indicative of the deterioration process of seeds stored at low temperatures and moisture content was correlated with EC. Maximum germination percentage was achieved immediately after harvesting and gradually decreases with storage time. Seed aging is the main problem of seed storage. Application of accelerated storage study could be used to assess seed vigor and quality. Physiological changes that occur in seeds during storage are manifested as reduction in seedling vigor index, number of germination, percentage germination, speed of germination and rate of germination among others. The study thus, was aimed at prolonging the longevity of sesame seed through different characteristic premeditated during of the storage.
