Abstract

Groundnut is a self pollinated crop grown worldwide for its edible oil and vegetable protein. Production of quality seed not only involves technical skill, labour and finance but the produced seed needs to be properly saved until next planting time. Hence the experiment was carried out to study the influence of fumigants and number of fumigation on seed quality parameters during storage. The results revealed that, groundnut ssed fumigated with ethylene dibromide at 30 and 90 days after harvest retained satisfactory germination (70%) and higher values for all seed quality parameters up to six months, whereas the seeds fumigated with aluminium phosphide for four times recorded lowest groundnut beetle population at the end of ten months of storage.
