Seed Biology, Production & Quality - February 2013
Delivering improved varieties and crop protection through high quality seed is a vital component of modern agricultural production systems. It is critical that seed producers have an understanding of the biological factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of seed health, vigor and viability, and how those qualities are measured. This course presents the scientific background for production, handling, storage and quality control procedures in the seed industry. It updates participants on new information in these topics, including seed pathology and seed enhancement. The course targets professionals in the seed industry, new employees, consultants, and seed producers to extend and update their knowledge.
The course has been expanded to include both hands-on exercises and detailed discussions of seed production and seed technology. Participants have the opportunity to attend Seed Central Research and Technology, Brainstorming and Forum events on the afternoon of February 14. For more information see Seed Central.
