The seed viability of stored wheat grains was checked by sprouting test. The germination studies shown that viability of the stored wheat grain reduces on storage. The study has shown that the U.P. 262 has much more sprouting capability as compared to H.D. 1982. The sprouting capacity of both the varieties analyzed showed a decrease to about 70% after three years of storage. After 3 years it takes from days to weeks and in some cases even months for sprouting to be complete. The seed viability… CONTINUE READING
