Abstract:
The experiments were conducted in the laboratory of Plant Pathology Department, Bangladesh Jute Research Institute (BJRI), Manik Mia Avenue, Dhaka; Seed Pathology Center, Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh, Oil Seed Division, Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI). The experiments were conducted during the period 15 January 2010 to 5 March 2012. Nine different types of containers viz. tin pot, plastic pot, poly bag, gunny bag, gunny bag lined with polythene, earthen pot, cloth bag, brown paper and IRRI poly bag, two level of moisture contents viz. farmers’ condition (13%) and recommended moisture condition (9.5%) by Bangladesh Gazette (2010) were used for the present study. Seeds were stored for 12 months and examined after 4. 8 and 12 months of storage. Among the nine containers, tin pot was found better and brown paper was found poorest performance in respect of seed oil and protein content. The findings of the present study also reveal that recommended moisture content (9.5% moisture content in seed) was better than moisture content at farmers’ condition. So, Quality of jute seeds can be maintained by storage in tin pot and recommendation moisture content (9.5%).
