Hi,

Characteristics of a good quality seed:

  • The seed must be superior than the other varieties of the crop.
  • It must be either 100% genetically pure or more than a 90% hybrid seed.
  • Seed must be able to germinate under normal conditions.
  • There should not be the presence of any disease causing microorganisms.
  • The seed must be dried well enough to avoid further loss of moisture content.
