This review was aimed to examine the changes in physiological parameter of oil seeds crop during storage. Most of these studies search for markers of germination such as increases in amylase activity or changes in free radical scavenging enzymes such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, peroxidase, and others. Protein content declines while amino acid content increases with seed ageing as seen in this study with pigeon pea seeds subjected to differing durations of accelerated ageing. Adverse environmental conditions and seed storage can cause oxidative stress in plant tissue, and development of superoxide radical, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radical, which are the most active, toxic and destructive products of oxidative stress. Antioxidants in foods and oils play an important role in maintaining the quality of foods and oils. The optimum storage conditions were found to be at 25-30°C and 55-65 % RH. Storage containers play an important role during oil seed storage.
