Abstract: Conditioning of cocoa seeds using five per cent moist sand impregnated with Jalsakthi 10 per cent solution in polyvinyl bags minimized the rate of drying and loss of viability up to 40 days under ambient conditions. The leakage of solutes was more in untreated seeds. The lowest safe moisture contents to retain 50 per cent viability and above appears to be 22 per cent.
