Abstract

A study was conducted to detennine the physical characteristics and to assess the gennination of Neolamarckia cadamba (Roxb.) Bosser seeds in different storage environment. Seeds were dehydrated in silica gel for 0, 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours then were kept in airtight bottles and stored in five environments: ambient room (28 -30°C), air-conditioned room (20 -23°C), refrigerator (3 -5°C), cold room (-4°C) and incubator (40°C) for 21 days. The dehydrated seeds at 72 hours were found successfully genninated after stored in all environments with mean gennination between 64.93 to 87.37% after 21 days of storage. The highest germination of 100% was obtained after 72 hours of dehydration for seeds kept in cold room after 6 days with 14.14% moisture content. The most suitable environment was for seeds stored in cold room where germination was between 50.72 to 87.37% for a period up to 21 days. The temperature of storage gave significant different in percentage of gennination of seeds.
