Keywords:Amaranthus cruentus L., potencial fisiológico, conservação
AbstractThe objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of the storage environment on quality of
amaranth seed. The seeds were placed in polyethylene bags and stored for ten months in cold and
in laboratory conditions. To evaluate the physiological quality of seeds, we determined the water,
the one hundred seed weight, germination and vigor. The storage of amaranth in the cold chamber
was more efficient for the conservation of physiological seed quality.
