Soybeans damaged by combine harvesting were placed in storage at 10. 6 percent moisture for two years. Samples were tested initially and after 4, 7. 5, 10. 5, 18. 5, and 23. 5 months in storage. Tests for germination, seedcoat cracks, breakage, seed tissue damage and oil quality were performed to determine the effects of storage time and harvest damage on seed quality. Germination percentages decreased considerably after one year in storage. Phosphorus content of the oil also decreased with storage time.
