Full Germination

Replicates of 100 seeds are grown under optimum conditions for a fixed period.  Each seedling is then examined, and seedlings likely to produce healthy adult plants are counted.  Each seedling is also examined for any abnormality which could prevent it from developing, giving an accurate guide to field potential.  This test will detect drying heat damage and phytotoxic damage caused by chemicals (Glyphosate).  The method by which germination is determined is the same as for certified seed as prescribed by OSTS and the ISTA.

Sample Weight: 250g

Result: 7 - 12 days

The sample weights stated are the recommended minimum and the result times are approximate.

The results of each test refer to the analysis performed on the material received. Their relationship to the composition of the original bulk will depend on the sampling procedures employed
