Quantifying seed deterioration


, : Quantifying seed deterioration. Special Publication, CSSA (11): 101-123

Below a critical seed moisture content (15-28%), longevity of orthodox seeds in storage is increased by decreasing moisture content. Independently, longevity is also increased by decreasing temp. A viability equation, which also takes into account initial seed quality, enables percentage viability to be predicted after any storage period under a wide range of conditions.
