The aim of the study was to examine several storage containers for the quality of the seeds of three
rice varieties. Using a randomized block design faktorial. The first factor is the storage container (W)
consisting of W1 = open cardboard, W2 = gunny sack, W3 = plastic and W4 = can. The second factor is
rice varieties consisting of V1 = inpara 3, V2 = situbagendit and V3 = towuti. The physiological quality
variables observed are water content, germination power and the potential for maximum seed growth.
The results showed that the storage container and variety had an effect on water content, germination
and the potential for maximum seed growth. The physiological quality of Towuti seeds can be
maintained for up to 70 days in a sealed storage container in the form of cans.
