In storage, the seeds can be deteriorated by storage time and also caused by pests in warehouse. Sorghum seed is very susceptible to pest attacks in warehouse. Fumigation on the seed not only to prevent pest attacks in warehouse, but also have negative effects on seed viability. This study aimed to determine the effect of long-term fumigation with phosphine (PH3) and long-term storage on viability of seed sorghum. This experiment was conducted at the Laboratory of Seeds and Plant Breeding, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Lampung from July 2016 to April 2017. The treatment is applied to the experimental unit in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) factorial treatments consisted long-term fumigation and long-term storage. Each treatment was repeated three replication. If the assumptions are complete, the performed will be analysis of variance. Separation of the middle value did with honestly significant difference test (HSD) at 5% level. The results showed that the interaction effect of long-term fumigation and long-term storage on viability of seed sorghum which shown by the variable of electrical conductivity, speed of germination, and normal seedling total. Long-term fumigation for 48 hours does not lead to decreased viability until 9 months old and long term fumigation for 72 hours led to loss of viability in storage time of 6 months.
