Testa quality and physiological age are two principle components of pea, lentil, faba bean and chickpea seed quality. • The storage … Seed storage is very important to secure good quality seeds for planting programs whenever needed. Testa quality and physiological age are two principle components of pea, lentil, faba bean and chickpea seed quality. a) Seed storage condition should be dry and cool. In, Hebblethwaite, P. D., Hawtin, G. C. and Dantuma, G. (1983). • The moisture content o f seed should be minim ized up to 8 - 12% or below, for safe storage purposes. In. Ellis, R. H., Hong, T. D. and Roberts, E. H. (1985b). This practice results in accumulating supplies of desired genetic stocks for use in years following periods of low production. CAB Direct is the most thorough and extensive source of reference in the applied life sciences, In.
