Seed testing with the use of X-rays



Seed testing with the use of X-rays



Prace Instytutu Badawczego Lesnictwa ( 724-730): 69-93



A comparison of the results of radiographic examination with those of germination tests indicated that the former were only of use for rapid evaluation or as a complementary method to germination tests X-ray analysis was, however, useful in determining whether seeds could still be sowed, and in monitoring environmental influences on seeds.
