Good afternoon. You are the agricultural technician right? I have some questions if its's alright? What are the guidelines in obtaining quality seeds?
Good afternoon, Sir. Yes. The seed quality characters are physical quality, genetic purity, physiological quality and seed health.
Oh okay. Thank you.
Hence, the quality seed should have high genetic purity, high pure seed percentage (physical purity), high germinability, high vigour,higher field establishment, free from pest and disease, good shape, size, colour etc., according to the specification of variety, high longevity / shelf life, optimum moisture content for storage and high market value characteristics of good quality seed.
Hi Miss! I have questions too.
Yeah sure. What is it?
