Abstract:
An investigation on “Effect of storage conditions and containers on storability of jambhiri seeds” was conducted at the Post-Harvest Technology Laboratory, Section of Horticulture, College of Agriculture Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola, during the year 2018-2019 with the objectives to study the effect of different packaging material on storability of jambhiri seeds under refrigerated condition and to find out suitable packaging material and storage condition for better storability, germination seed and seedling growth of jambhiri. The jambhiri seeds were stored at 4 °C ± 1,7 °C ± 1 and Ambient temperature in polybag 200 gauge, cotton bags, plastic container and plastic container with jambhiri juice. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Completely Randomized Design.
From the findings it was observed that, the jambhiri seeds stored at 7 °C in plastic container showed maximum germination percentage (55.26%), whereas, minimum (20.12%) was observed in seeds stored at 7 °C in polybag 200 gauge after 150 days of storage. Minimum days to 50% germination (13.00) was observed when seeds stored at 7 °C in plastic container whereas, maximum (16.00) days to 50% germination was observed when seeds stored at 7 °C in plastic container with juice after 150 days of storage. Maximum bartlett’s rate index observed when seeds stored at 7 0C in plastic container (0.478). While, minimum bartlett’s rate index (0.449) was observed at 7 °C temperature with polybag 200 gauge. Maximum vigour index (394.21) was observed in seed stored at 7 °C plastic container and minimum vigour index (116.16) was observed at 7 °C polybag 200 gauge.
