Abstract:
Accelerated ageing has been used in predicting seed storability as it is known to reduce seed viability and vigour in many oil seed crops. This study was under taken to examine the effect of accelerated ageing on germinability, physical and physiological characteristics of sesame. Seeds were subjected to accelerated aging conditions by exposing the seeds at 40° C and 100 per cent relative humidity. The results suggested the oil seed deteriorate under accelerated ageing is closely related to a decrease in the physiological parameters seed germination, seedling length, dry matter production and vigour index.
