ABSTRACT
The present paper deals with the storage of freshly collected seeds of Aegle marmelos (L) correa. The effect of two storage conditions viz; open and closed under five temperature regimes -100,0 0, 100, 150C and ambient temperature were observed. The initial germination and moisture content of seeds were 62.50% and 15.1% respectively. Among all the storage conditions, seeds stored at room temperature showed rapid decline of moisture content. Maximum seed moisture retention was found with storage in open and closed conditions at 10oC, after 32 months of storage, showed maximum germination of 32.25% and 39.50% respectively. The result envisaged that the seeds of the species can be stored at low temperature with seed moisture content below 10% for longer period. Further the results of the present study clearly indicate that the seeds of Aegle marmelos exhibit the intermediate storage physiology.

Key words : Aegle marmelos, Intermediate seeds, Moisture content, Storage, Temperature.
