Viability of stored seeds play significant roles in the socioeconomy of nations, hence, the effects of storage duration and methods, on the shelflife of the seeds of African breadfruit, Treculia african, were studied using conventional and traditional methods. Irrespective of storage duration and methods, seed germination decreased with increased exposure of seeds to storage environment. Synergistic effect of storage duration and methods strongly influenced initial and total percentage seed germination. Seeds stored for I to 9 weeks using traditional method: basket lined with fresh leaves of, Costus afer (B1) and Althorn cordifolia (B2) respectively, consistently influenced higher percentage seed germination range. B1 60.5% to 86.5%,; B2, 65% to 86%) than seeds stored by conventional method, (D), range 40.5% to 75.5%). In the ninth week, traditional storage (B2) influenced the highest percentage seed germination (65%), followed by B1 (60.5%), while conventional storage (D) influenced the least percentage seed germination (40.5%). Further studies are necessary extending the storage duration and involving fresh leaves of other plant species.
