This is a preview of subscription content. General Principles of Seed Storage In view of the various factors affecting seed viability in storage, the following principles emerge as necessary for good storage. Matthews, S., Powell, A. Seeds attain specific and characteristic moisture content when subjected to given levels of atmospheric humidity. 1.1 Factors affecting seed quality Seed quality is determined by a number of genetic and physiological characteristics. This characteristics moisture content is referred to as equilibrium moisture content, for a particular kind of speed at a given relative humidity, tends to … In. • The moisture content o f seed should be minim ized up to 8 - 12% or below, for safe storage purposes.
