Studies were made to evaluate the seed treatments (halogen mixture, bavistin and diflubenzuron) and storage containers (paper bag, 700 gauge polyethylene bag and aluminium foil polylaminated pouch) on storability of petunia seeds with cv.Mix. The results revealed that the germination reduces from 96 to 75 per cent with 12 months of storage period under ambient condition irrespective of treatments. Among the seed treatments, halogen mixture followed by diflubenzuron found to be better as seed treating chemicals. Storability of seed is better in moisture vapour proof container (aluminium foiled pouch) than moisture pervious container (paper bags).
