The study was undertaken in order to know the effect of cold storage conditions on viability and vigour of groundnut seeds. The seeds produced in different locations were stored in different containers in the form of pods and kernels under cold storage condition. Among them, the seeds produced at Bagalkot and stored as pods in vacuum pack recorded significantly higher seed quality parameters, compared to other locations viz Dharwad and Kumta, kernel form and containers viz polylined gunny bag and HDPE bag. The seeds produced in Bagalkot, stored as pods in vacuum packing recorded significantly higher germination per cent (73.70 %), seedling length (18.36 cm) and seedling vigour index (2179) compared to other treatments.

Key words: Viability, Vigour, Vacuum pack, Germination, Groundnut.
