The effect of different gaseous atmosphere and seed moisture content on viability of rye seeds in long-term storage experiment



The effect of different gaseous atmosphere and seed moisture content on viability of rye seeds in long-term storage experiment



Challenges in rye germplasm conservation Proceedings of an International Conference on Crop Germplasm Conservation with Special Emphasis on Rye, and an ECP/GR Workshop, Warsaw/Konstancin Jeziorna, Poland, 2-6 July 1996: 24-26



Rye seed samples (cv. Dankowskie Zote) were dried to 3.7 or 5.5% moisture content (fwb) and stored in different gaseous environments: air, vacuum, CO2 and N2. Seed samples were sealed in hermetic glass containers and stored in a chamber at ambient temperature (about 10 degrees C). Seed viability was checked periodically. Data were recorded after 2, 3, 10, 15 and 19 years of storage. The first visible differences in seed viability were observed after 3 years of storage.
