The present Investigation was carried out to elucidate the storability of drip fertigation resultant seeds of pigeonpea (cv.VBN 3).The laboratory studies were conducted at Agricultural College and Research Institute, Madurai, during 2011. The study on resultant seed storability revealed that, among the 13 treatments, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9, T10, T11 and T12 were good storers, while T1, T2, T3 and T13 were medium storers. Whereas seeds stored in polyethylene bag maintained a germination of 93.0 per cent after nine months of storage and the seed quality characters in terms of physiological and biochemical parameters decreased with ageing irrespective of treatment and containers.
