|Abstract: ||In the present study, the effect of modified atmosphere storage on the maintenance of seed quality in cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.) was studied. Seeds of cabbage cv Pride of India were processed and stored in modified atmosphere with nitrogen, carbon dioxide and partial vacuum for 4 years under ambient conditions. The studies revealed that percentage of seed germination was reduced rapidly in modified atmosphere storage, reduction being least in seeds stored in carbon dioxide after 3 years of storage. Even the seedling growth, dry weight and vigour were greater for CO2 stored seeds. The studies suggests that storage of cabbage seeds especially in carbon dioxide is effective and inexpensive for short-term preservation of seed quality and would prove beneficial in absence of cold storage facility.|
