Impact of environment, storage time and packaging materials on seeds viability of soybean seeds

Vijay Shanker Bhanu, KP Mishra, Dr. Anjaney Panday and Ashwani Duggal
This study was conducted on seeds of Soybean crop which is very sensitive and delegate to maintain its Seeds certification standard during storage till it’s plantation for forthcoming season. Soybean crop is being cultivated during kharif season in large cultivation area of the country and it is known as a cash crop in Madhya Pradesh. The main objective of conducting this study was to find out suitable type of package for its storage to maintain certification level of germination percentage and safe level of moisture content up to period it cultivate in forthcoming season. Study was conducted on certified seeds of soybean crop and it stored in packages of four different fabrics of four various thicknesses of each fabric for period of one year. Seeds viability and moisture content of seeds stored in each package and effect of Package’s physical properties on seeds viability were studied in detail at the interval of every three months up to the period of one year. During study it was noted that seeds Viability go on deteriorate with respect to storage time. Package’s physical properties in seeds stored has got significant impact on seeds viability. Package of HDPE fabric was found most suitable to store of Soybean seeds among packages of other fabrics used for conducting this study. Soybean seeds at 12% moisture content can store in HDPE packages up to period more than six months under ambient condition in ventilated package store. HDPE package are cheaper in cost among package of all other fabrics which reduce the seed cost and support to farmers in getting seeds at cheaper rate.
