Seed Storage is a common feature of successful seed production-marketing operations. If you wish to store seeds for a longer period i.e. from 6 months to 10 years, conditioning of the storage environment is always necessary. The higher the moisture content of the seed, the more they are adversely affected by the temperature.
Seeds absorb moisture from the atmosphere due to a gradient created in vapour pressure, whereby the moisture moves from high to low vapour pressure. Moreover, insect activity stops at moisture equal to < 35 percent RH; similarly fungal activity is inhibited at less than 65 to 70 percent RH.
Seed moisture increases especially in sealed storage; well-dried and low-moisture seeds are preserved in moisture-proof containers during storage. Higher oxygen content during storage reduces seed viability. In open storage, humidity is controlled using a dehumidifier while at low temperature, moisture-proof containers are used to protect seeds with high humidity.
People who are genuinely interested in maintaining both germination and vigour should consider establishing “conditioned” storage units with “MECH-AIR INDUSTRIES”.
