Availability of seed lots with different viabilities is very important as the material for invigoration studies. Accelerated or rapid aging methods is expected to serve seeds with different viabilities for those studies. The objective of this study was to obtain efficient seeds rapid aging method of rice seeds.  The study consisted of three experiments i.e. rapid aging with ethanol gas,  soaking  seed  in  liquid  ethanol  (96%)  and  exposing  seeds  to  41 oC  temperature  and  ±  100%  relative  humidity.   Each experiment was arranged in a randomized block design with single factor that was length of aging with three replications. There were eight rice varieties used in this study, i. e. three varieties of upland rice, two verieties of lowland rice, and three varieties of swamp rice.   The results showed that the physical aging method could not produce reliable data due to fungus infection on the treated seed. It was found that generally 60% and 50% viabilities of rice seed could be obtain by ethanol gas treatment for 4.9 and 5.3 hours, as well as by liquid ethanol for 4.0 and 4.4 minutes, respectively. Rapid aging method with liquid ethanol was the fastest and simplest method for decreasing seed viability of rice. Keywords: Ethanol, rapid aging, invigoration, seed viability
