Seed storage in ambient conditions in humid tropical regions is a serious problem. In the present study, we examined whether the loss of germination capacity and viability of cotton seeds during storage under relative humidity levels (45%, 60%, 75% and 90%) in three different storage containers for 60 days associated with accelerated ageing. The germination percentage and vigour index decreased with accelerated ageing. At 45% and 60% RH though polythene bags and aluminium bags retained better… CONTINUE READING
