Peanut seed, (cv. Hanoch and Congo) were stored both shelled and in-shell at various moisture contents and 15, 20 and 26 C, in an apparatus designed to purge air at relative humidities in equilibrium with the moisture contents of the seed. Storage lasted nearly 6 months and during this period the moisture contents and germination percentages of the seed were examined periodically.
