Abstract:
This study, titled “Assessing the Impact of Varied Storage Conditions and Materials on the Sustained Viability of Acid Lime cv. Petlur Pulusu Nimma Seeds “was conducted at the Horticultural Research Station in Anantharajupeta, Annamayya district, during the 2022-2023 period. Acid lime seeds were subjected to storage at three different temperatures (4 °C, 7 °C, and room temperature) and using three types of storage containers (polythene bags, plastic containers, and aluminium foil bags) for a duration of 150 days. The experiment followed a three-factorial completely randomized design with 45 treatment combinations, each replicated three times. The results revealed that seeds stored at 4 °C in aluminum foil bags for 30 days (T1M3S1) exhibited the highest seed moisture content at 51.06%. Maximum germination percentage (81.27%) was observed in seeds stored at 4 °C in aluminum foil bags for 30 days (T1M3S1). Furthermore, the highest seedling vigor index-I (947.16 cm) was recorded in seeds stored at 4 °C in aluminum foil bags for 30 days (T1M3S1), while the highest seedling vigor index-II (37.02 g) was observed under the same conditions (T1M3S1).
