Abstract: Soybean is popular in Vidarbha and its consumption is increasing at a very rapid rate. Biochemical constituent such as Protein content and reducing sugar of soybean seeds is an important factor which influences the physiological soundness of seed. Among the different available verities of soybean seed in Vidarbha region, most popular varieties are JS-335 and AMS-99-33. In the present work the comparative study of Protein Content and Reducing Sugar in the varieties JS-335 and AMS-99-33 have been presented. It has been observed that, during storage of Soybean seeds under tropical storage conditions in different containers for the period of 540 days, there is remarkable changes seen in Protein Content and Reducing Sugar at different rate in two different verities JS-335 and AMS-99-33. The seed protein content was decreased significantly in both varieties JS-335 and AMS-99-33 (38.16% and 37.80% respectively) after 540 days of storage. Seeds stored in Polyethylene bag recorded maximum protein content as compared to Cloth and Jute bag. Whereas, the reducing sugar content was decreased significantly in JS-335 and AMS-99-33, (0.83 % and 0.80% respectively) after 540 days of storage. Seeds stored in Polyethylene bag recorded maximum reducing sugar compared to Cloth and Jute bag at the end of storage.
