Rice variety ADT (R) 46 seeds have the problem of poor storage and therefore, to increase the storability of the seeds an experiment was conducted at Tamil Nadu Rice Research Institute, Aduthurai during 2016-18 by treating the seeds with different chemicals and leaf extracts. The results showed that the seeds treated with anti-oxidant, α - tocopherol (Vitamin - E) @ 1 % for 18 h and stored in polylined gunny bag have recorded the higher germination (95 %) and seedling vigour upto six months compared to control. However, germination and vigour were reduced significantly after six months irrespective of the treatments. The varietal genetic makeup and climatic factor are the most probable causes for its poor storage.

Keywords: Rice, Seed storage, Viability, Vigour, anti-oxidant, α - tocopherol, Vitamin - E
