  • Product Description

This work on: 'Predicting the Longevity of Maize Seeds under Moisture-conditioned and Open Storage in Humid Tropical Seed Stores' aimed at evaluating the potential quality and storability of some commercial maize germplasm under humid tropical storage conditions. It was an attempt by the author to detail the physiological quality deterioration trends of maize seeds exposed to different storage environments and over a period of time. The study was carried out in the seed stores of The University of Agriculture, Abeokuta south west Nigeria and Institute of Agriculture Research and Training, Ibadan south west Nigeria during 2005/2006 and 2006/2007 seasons. The results showed evidence of seed deterioration in time; but with differences ranging from one seed storage environment to the other.This work confirmed the suitability of probit modeling in predicting seed longevity of agricultural crops.It can be concluded that ambient humid tropical conditions are not the best for seed storage of orthodox seeds.
