Behaviour of different sorghum genotypes under controlled storage conditions

, : Behaviour of different sorghum genotypes under controlled storage conditions. Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 20(2): 171-174

Seeds of sorghum CSH-5 and CSH-9 and improved varieties SPV-462 and SPV-904 were stored at 45, 60 or 90% RH and 20 or 40 degrees C and were assessed after 60, 120, 180, 240 and 300 days of storage. Germination percentage decreased during storage and the reduction was greater at 40 degrees than 20 degrees. Viability and vigour were highest when seeds were stored at 45% RH and 20 degrees.
