In the present study the IDS (Incubation-Drying- Separation) technique was tested on a seed lot of Anogeissus latifolia. Data envisaged that above criteria based on the extent of temperature and drying as found in nature is suitable and provide accurate result for separating viable and dead seed fractions. All drying treatments gave 73.25 to 100% germination in sunken fraction compared to 12.50% for untreated seeds. The aim of this study was to improve seed lots quality by remaining non viable seeds using above technique which is desirable to produce uniform and vigorous seedlings in the nursery. The seed vitality of floated or sink was also determined by 2, 3, 5 triphenyl terazolium chloride test.

Key words : Anogeissus latifolia, Empty seeds, Filled seeds, Incubation drying separation (IDS).
