Author(s): Jyoti, Prashant Kumar Rai, Harish kumar and Arif Ali
Abstract: Impact of packaging materials and seed treatments on seedling characters during storage, in two different rice varieties was studied during October 2014 to March 2015. Two variety viz. Pusa basmati-1(V1), and Jaya (V2) were equally divide into 4 lots of 2000 gm each and treated with castor oil @ 5ml/kg seed (T1), neem cake @ 10 gm/ kg seed (T2), Thiram @ 2gm/kg (T3) seed alone with control (untreated T0) and packed in vaccum polythene bags (P1), non vaccum polythene bags (P2), and jute bags (P3) and maintained for 24 weeks with 12% seed moisture content under ambient conditions. The results clearly revealed that seed stored in non vaccum polythene bags and treated with Thiram, variety Jaya was proved to be superior as it retained good, fresh weight (mean P2 0.9, T3 1.0 and V2 0.8g), dry weight (mean P2 0.5, T3 0.6 and V2 0.4g) and Pusa basmati-1 was proved to be superior germination percent (mean V1 63.10, P2 59.40 and T3 63.80%) and average seedling length (mean V1 18.60, P2 18.00 and T3 18.00cm), which is stored in non vaccum polythene bags and treated with thiram.
