The study was conducted to find out the influence of packaging and storage conditions on different seed quality parameters of paddy. Paddy seeds were stored in different packaging materials viz; vacuum packed bags (C1), polythene bags (C2), cloth bags (C3) and gunny bags (C4) stored at room temperature (25 ± 2º C) and cold storage (4 ± 1º C) for a period of 18 months. Among the storage conditions, cold storage recorded better seed quality, physiological and biochemical parameters over room temperature, irrespective the storage containers throughout the storage period of 18 months. Among the containers, the seeds stored in vacuum packed bags maintained the quality. the quality with least deterioration compared to sample stored in gunny and cloth bags due to rate of absorbance of moisture content is more in gunny bags and cloth bags because these are not air tight container while vacuum packaged bags maintained constant moisture content.

Key words: Seed quality parameters, Paddy, Vacuum Packaging, Storage
