Abstract

Dry dressing of freshly harvested lablab seeds with thiram @ 2g kg 1, activated clay @ 1:100
(clay: seed ratio) and halogens @ 3g kg-1 revealed that the seeds dry dressed with thiram @ 2g kg
-1 and stored in 700 gauge polythene bag maintained the maximum germination (80%), drymatter
production (134 mg seedling-10), protein content (24.24%) and minimum leakage of electrical
conductivity (0.940 dSm-1) and bruchid infestation (9.58%) up to one year under natural ageing
conditions over control. In all the treatments, the deterioration of seed quality parameters was less
in polythene bag compared to cloth bag
