Prediction of viability of seeds of Pongamia pinnata (Karanj) under controlled conditions
Viability equations were used to predict the longevity of seeds of Pongamia pinnata stored at different conditions. The viability constants for this particular species were estimated and the fitness of the equations was discussed. The storage life of 40 years was derived for seeds dried to 4.5% moisture content and stored at 5°C; this was followed by 16 years of viability with the seeds dried to 4.5% moisture content and stored at 15°C.
