Assessment of wheat varieties' seed quality parameters under accelerated ageing: implications for storability and vigour

Sunita Bhandari*

Using accelerated ageing, this study sought to assess the seed quality parameters of four wheat types (VL-802, VL-829, VL-892, and UP-1109). For 15, 30, and 45 days, seeds were exposed to controlled degradation at 45°C and 100% relative humidity in addition to a control group. To evaluate initial count, standard germination, root and shoot length, fresh and dried weights, and moisture content, laboratory studies were carried out. The findings showed that there were notable variations in seed quality metrics between cultivars and aging times. VL-892 established itself as a dependable stored under ambient conditions by demonstrating a greater capacity to preserve seed quality during accelerated ageing. On the other hand, VL-802 had worse storability than VL-829 and UP-1109, which both showed intermediate storability. Overall, there was a decline in all measured parameters with an increase in the ageing period.
