Seed deterioration can occur by the length of the storage period or accelerated aging. The viability of seeds will be lower due to increasing seed deterioration. This experiment aimed to compare the viability of the seeds of two varieties of sorghum, Numbu, and UPCA-S2, due to the natural storage period and due to accelerated aging. The intensity of aging was the increasing concentration of ethanol solution. Some seeds were stored in a room with a temperature of 27,3 ± 0,9ᵒC, and their viability was observed periodically every 2 months up to 6 months. Some other sorghum seeds were treated by moisturizing them in ethanol solution with increasing concentrations, 0, 4, 8, and 12%, each for 24 hours. Seed viability was observed at each end of the rapid aging treatment. The storage period and the intensity of aging treatment significantly (P<0,01) reduced the percentage of normal seedling and germination speed. The viability of Numbu soybean seeds and UPCA-S2 decreased significantly in the accelerated aging treatment with 8% ethanol concentration, also in the two-month storage period treatment.
