  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.

  Intensive crop improvement programme has resulted in the development of large number of high yielding varieties in different crops and more so in groundnut. Thus, production and distribution of quality seeds to the farmers become increasingly important. In a seed production programme, storage of seeds till the distribution during next season assumes paramount importance. Being an oil seed, groundnut losses its viability soon. Though, the initial seed quality and storage environment are important to prolong the shelf life of seeds, the invasion of fungal pathogen also play a major role in decreasing the viability of a seed lot in groundnut. So it is necessary to study the seed quality changes that occur during storage of seeds as a result of changes in biochemical constituents of seeds due to fungal infection. This review article will try to give the relationship between seed borne pathogens and seed quality deterioration and relative biochemical changes occur in seeds.
