Seed science and technology

Seed science and technology involves disciplines like plant production, agronomy, plant physiology, plant science, entomology and plant pathology. The seed  most vital to begin with for a healthy plant. If a seed isn't viable a it won't germinate. If a seed has low vigour a weak sprout may emerge that eventually will succumb to environmental conditions or will be attacked by pathogens or insects. It’s important to confirm that the seed is viable and can produce to vigorous seedlings that would stand up to unfavourable environmental conditions and pests.

Correct sampling of a seed is vital before any tests are done on the seed. The purity, physical and genetic, should be determined before testing. All seed ought to be tested for viability, that is, the percentage of germination should be determined and recorded on the seed lot.
