Abstract

The laboratory experiment was conducted at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India to elucidate the influence of pre-storage seed treatments and containers on storability of seeds of grain amaranthus (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) Cv. Suvarna. The study revealed that, among the treatments, seeds treated with Carbendazim and Imidacloprid at 2 g kg–1 seed and 100 mg kg–1 seed, respectively and stored in poly laminated aluminum foil pouch maintained maximum germination of 97 percent after six months of seed storage. The seed quality characters in terms of physiological and biochemical parameters decreased with ageing irrespective of containers and seed treatments of grain amaranthus.
