Seed Viability and Performance

Validations and enhancement of seed viability, vigor, grow-outs and other seed performances

The objective of research in this area is to speed up germination, assure germination uniformity and to verify plant types through grow-out testing and performance by several means: breaking dormancy efficiently, improving scarification methods, chemical-physical treatments and additives, and by accelerating plant development for effective species identification.
