ABSTRACT

Production of true seeds of onion is a very highly technical approach. Technical information on different aspects of production of true seeds of onion is very limited in Bangladesh. Germination failure due to improper storage of true seeds of onion is one of the problems for the farmers to produce true seeds of onion. The experiment was laid out in a completely randomized design with four replications to select suitable container for storage of true seeds of onion. Five treatments viz. C1= Tin container C2= Polythene bag, C3= Gunny bag, C4= Plastic container and C5= Earthen pot were consisted to achieve the objective. The experiment was conducted at the Department of Plant Pathology, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during 2011-2012. The results revealed that the percentage of germination, moisture content of seed and prevalence of seed borne fungi were significantly influenced by the different treatments. Results showed that among different containers, plastic pot is the best practice for storing of onion seed for a period of 6-7 months followed by tin container.

Keywords: Container, storability, true seeds, onion.
