Special seed-production number. Storage of seed and control of insects in stored seed

Special seed-production number. Storage of seed and control of insects in stored seed

Fmg S. Afr, 19: 271-3

The optimum conditions for seed storage are those which reduce the vital activity of the seed to a minimum. These can be achieved by thoroughly drying the seed before storing and keeping it in a cool dry place after cleaning well to remove all impurities. To facilitate the drying out of seed and to allow of free circulation of air it is recommended that the bags of seed should be packed in long narrow stacks on poles well away from floors and walls.
