Seed Quality Deterioration in Groundnut Due to Fungi During Storage

M. Ameer Junaithal Begum, P. Balamurugan and K. Prabakar    

Abstract: Studies were conducted to evaluate the seed quality changes during storage due to fungal infection, at the Department of Seed Science and Technology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore. The seed materials of groundnut variety VRI 2 collected from three different locations of Tamil Nadu viz., Vridhachalam (L1), Thindivanam (L2) and Villupuram (L3) were subjected to experimentation. During storage, seed quality parameters such as germination and vigour index decreased from 84-79% and 2581-2005, respectively while moisture content increased from 7.1-8%. The investigation revealed that the seeds collected from Tindivanam showed better seed quality with 81% germination, 7.8% moisture content and vigour index of 2216, even after seven months of storage.
