Germination and vigor
Why is germination important?
Viable seeds will germinate if they are placed under suitable conditions of moisture, temperature and oxygen. Poor harvesting and storage conditions can result in low seed quality, however, issues like cleaning, processing, shipping, disease, insects and environmental influences also have a high impact on the germination quality.
It is important to detect the germination capacity of a seed lot fast and efficiently in order to be able to proceed quickly with further seed handling. This is done smoothly with the VideometerLab where the multispectral imaging results will show you the percentage of viable seeds in your lot.
