Accelerated ageing test is an efficient vigour test to measure the seed vigour and predict seed storability and their longevity. The laboratory experiment was conducted at Department of Seed Science and Technology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore during 2017. This study was conducted on groundnut CO 7 pods and the pods were subjected to the accelerated ageing at 40 ± 1 C and 100% relative humidity for various time intervals (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 days). The samples were…

Radicle emergence test as a quick vigour test to predict field emergence performance in rice (Oryza sativa L.) seed lots
36 hour MGT with the attainment of 2mm radicle emergence percentage could be used as a quick method to assess rice seed lots' quality by the seed analysts and seed industry.
The Physical, Chemical, And Microbiological Properties Of Peanuts During Storage: A Review
Peanuts are nutrient-rich legumes, such as fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, which are beneficial to the body. However, during storage, these commodities are easily damaged physically,


Seed deterioration in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) under accelerated ageing.
The overall results showed that seed quality in chickpea deteriorates following accelerated ageing treatment and the physiological parameter viz., germination percentage, seedling root length, shoot length and consequently the vigour index in all varieties were significantly decreased.
Change in storage enzymes activities in natural and accelerated aged seed of wheat (Triticum aestivum)
The level of various antioxidant enzymes have been studied so as to find the exact cause of seed deterioration and the activity of all the antioxidant enzymes decreased after natural and artificial ageing treatment in all the varieties.
Studies on seed quality parameters in deteriorating seeds in Brassica (Brassica campestris)
Electrical conductivity and total soluble carbohydrates were negatively and significantly correlated with speed of emergence, seedling establishment (%) and seed yield (q/ha.).
Changes in Antioxidant Enzymes during Ageing of Onion Seeds
A high level of correlation was found between loss of seed viability and the decreases occur in CAT and SOD activities, in seeds of each onion cultivar.
Mechanisms of seed ageing under different storage conditions for Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek: lipid peroxidation, sugar hydrolysis, Maillard reactions and their relationship to glass state transition.
The data show that seed ageing slows down significantly, even before seed tissue enters into the glassy state, and this high critical temperature corresponds to the cross-over temperature of glass transition where molecular dynamics changes from a solid-like system to a normal liquid system.
Lipid peroxidation and peroxide-scavenging enzymes associated with accelerated aging of peanut seed
The results indicate that accelerated aging inhibited seed germination and seedling growth, and Seed axes appeared to be more susceptible to aging than cotyledons.

Use of the tetrazolium method merely involves preparation of the embryo of various species of seeds in such a way that all those parts which are decisive in the estimation of germinability be made visible.
Statistical Procedures for Agricultural Research.
This paper presents the results of a series of experiments conducted in farmers' fields in the Czech Republic over a period of three years to investigate the effects of agricultural pesticides on animal welfare and human health.
