Abstract

In the current work attempt has been made on the comparative studies of physico-chemical properties of coconut seeds during their storage with different temperatures and relative humidities. The physic-chemical characteristics of the seeds are found to depend on the condition of storage including storage, relative humidity, temperature, container of storage, season of storage, microbial and pest investation etc. However temperature and relative humidity are two such characters that dictinctily and hugely influence the physical and biochemical properties and physiology of seeds. In our work coconut seeds were stored at 100C and 300C for 90 days. The seeds stored at 100C did not show any evidence of spoilage at the end of three months storage period. But the seedborns stored at 300C showed deterioration . Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus niger were found to be the most prominent principal fungal agents associated with the spoilage. An investigation of the proximate composition component under consideration stored at 300C indicated some remarkable and significant results. The results and tests confirmed the ability of the isolated spoilage fungal 10 utilizes the different carbohydrate and nitrogen sources as sources of carbon and energy. Aspergillus flavus showed the ability to grow and utilize more of the various carbohydrate sources than Aspergilus niger. Both fungi showed evidence of growth and complete utilization of nearly all the nitrogen sources except cystenine, and L. Glutamine which could not support the growth Aspergillus higer. Like wise Cistine niger in additional to D-B phenylalanine could not.These results tests confirmed the ability of the isolated spoilage fungal utilizes the different carbohydrate and nitrogen sources as sources of carbon and energy.
