Abstract: Experiments were carried out to evaluate the pre sowing seed storage potential of green gram cv. CO 6. The seeds were imposed with hardening treatment with MgSO4 100 ppm (soaking in 1/3 volume of seed to solution ratio for 3h) and integrated seed management technique (Designer seed treatment (Hardening with MgSO4 100 ppm + Polymer 3ml/kg + Carbendazim 2g/kg + Imidacloprid 1ml/kg)) along with untreated seeds were packed in cloth bag and polythene bag and stored in nine months under ambient condition. The results revealed that, designer seed stored in polythene bag container maintained the seed quality parameters without seed deterioration upto nine months of storage.
