Effects of Storage Period and Temperature on Seed Viability of Wheat

Syeda Nasreen

Abstract:
The study was conducted to investigate the effects of storage temperature and storage period on seed viability of a wheat variety, Rawal-87. The seed moisture content and seed viability were determined in control which were 8.0 percent and 90 percent respectively. The interaction among storage period and storage temperature was statistically significant. In wheat, the maximum seed viability was observed at -20 and 5°C after 12 months storage. A decline in germination percentage was observed at 50°C after 4 months. Germination percentage was higher when petri dishes were used for germination tests. During germplasm storage of wheat, storage temperature and storage period play an important role.
