Abstract

The results of the research on containers for vegetable seed show that, in order to maintain the vigor and germination that the seed possessed at harvest, it is necessary to dry the seed and package it in moisture-resistant containers. Completely satisfactory containers are tin cans, pouches of aluminum foil laminated to polyester or polyethylene, or pouches of powdered aluminum in polyester. Containers almost as satisfactory and adequate for most storage conditions are aluminum laminated paper bags, thick polyethylene bags, and asphalt laminated paper bags.
