The present investigation was carried out with the objective of studying genetic variability among seed morphological traits in safflower genotypes. The field experiment was conducted at the research farms of ICAR-IIOR, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. Analysis of seed traits was carried out at of Department of Seed Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. Range and mean of seed morphological traits in the germplasm set were as follows: seed length (6.33-9.28 mm; 7.87 mm), seed breadth (2.72-4.42 mm; 3.83 mm), seed thickness (2.76-4.24 mm; 3.35 mm), length/breadth ratio (1.64-m2.45; 2.07), length x breadth product (17.24-41.60 mm; 30.28 mm), length x breadth x thickness product (43.54- 174.00 mm3; 102.43 mm3), hull content (29.50 -62.43%; 40.53%), test weight (2.17-5.71 g; 4.18 g) and bulk density (0.40-0.64; 0.54tm 3). Two hull types like normal (41) and striped (20) were observed in the germplasm set.
