Abstract

The seed storage experiment was conducted during 2008 and 2009 to assess the influence of Imidacloprid  70 ws on the quality of sunflower seeds during storage. The experiment consisting of four  factors   such as Seed storage, Varieties , Packing’s  and   Chemicals.  The results revealed  that  sunflower seeds  treated with imidacloprid 70 ws @ 5 g/ kg of seed  and  packed in cloth bag retained germination  up to 14 months  and   polythene bag was 18 months only. Among the varieties NSP-92-1(E)  has   good storability as compared to KBSH-1   without deleterious effect on seed quality.

Keywords
