Abstract: An experiment on storage was conducted at Naini Agricultural Institute SHUATS Allahabad, 211007 Uttar Pradesh during 2016 - 2017 on Bengalgram C1015. The seeds are treated with polymer, KH2PO4, Imidacloroprid, Pseudomonas, neem leaf extract with different combinations. The treated seeds are stored in polythene bag (700 gauge) at ambient conditions for assessment of seed germination, shoot length, root length, seedling length, seedling fresh matter and dry matter, seedling vigour indices, and protein &and carbohydrate content where data was subjected to factorial experiment laid out in completely randomized design. Germination percentage, root length, shoot length, seedling length, seedling dry weight, seed vigour mass seed vigour index. Among the treatments, polymer +neem leaf extract of seeds (T9) recorded higher germination percent shoot length, root length, seedling length, fresh weight, dry weight, vigour index I, vigour index II. The polymer coated seeds treated with insecticide and Biocide (T11), recorded significantly high seed protein & carbohydrate (%) compared to untreated seeds. at the end of 6th month of storage period.
