Abstract: Freshly harvested seeds of curryleaf will be having good germination but they will be loosing the viability quickly. An experiment was conducted to find out the treatment to maintain the seed qualities of curryleaf seeds. Seeds were extracted from fully ripe fruits, washed and dried under shade for 24 hrs, treated with carbendazim at 1 g kg seed. Seeds stored in plastic trays were maintained at 10 oC, those stored in 300 gauge polybag and cloth bags were maintained under room temperature. To check the seed viability, 25 seeds from each treatment were sown in seed pans with sand on 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 120, 150 and 180 days after storage. The carbendazim treated seeds stored in plastic trays at 10 oC recorded the highest germination of 75 even after 180 days. There was no germination in the untreated as well as carbendazim treated seeds stored under room temperature in cloth bags.
