He was an active member of the PDC for many years.

deedling With Kees pn have lost a colleague who has played an important role in the international field of seed pathology. Rainer Knoblauch for further information. In some species, for example Phaseolus vulgaris Powell et al.

Table 1 Correlation coefficients r of EC of seed soak water and field emergence for 18 seed lots1 of soyabean Glycine max80 lots2 of soyabean, eeedling lots of Phaseolus vulgaris3 and 11 lots of long bean4 Vigna sesquipedalis Interaction of imbibition damage and ageing The two major causes of reduced vigour in grain legumes, ageing and imbibition damage also interact, with aged seeds being more susceptible to imbibition damage seen in reduced TZ staining and increased leakage into soak water.

The effects of diseases and pests can be ameliorated by seed treatments. This number is different compared to the previous issues, not only because of the contents itself, but because of the new structuring of the contents. The association will continue to organise annual meetings in order to facilitate contacts between the experts. It is exactly this novelty that required some adjustments in terms and requirements of the accreditation process.

This can have a role in the early stages of seed ageing Powell and Matthews, Kees began his career in as scientific staff member in the Department of Phytopathology of the Wageningen Agricultural University, the Netherlands, where he carried out his PhD work. The bulk conductivity test as an indicator of soybean seed quality. Ninety-three percent of the respondents recommended some type of formal training at the collegiate level that includes classroom training, distance education courses and apprenticeships.


Genotype x Environment x Management interactions. Impaired membrane integrity — a fundamental cause of seed quality differences in peas.

Danida has supported a comprehensive consultancy in accreditation procedures by former ISTA Executive Officer Heinz Schmid and accreditation of the national laboratory in Hanoi is handdbook progress now. Recent figures compiled by Dr. But the main responsibility of the Meeting took over Prof. We have focussed on the two main explanations for high leakage from low vigour seeds for which there is substantial evidence, namely seed ageing and imbibition damage.

Proficiency Test on Moisture Content Testing — In-round Performance Each year moisture content tests are included in one of the PT rounds so the results of only three test rounds are available seddling analysis. The revisions consists of three different parts: The seed technology problems associated with developing the potential of undomesticated species is covered in the session on the Domestication and Use of Non-Crop Species, chaired by Dr.

Dennis TeKrony, University of Kentucky, indicated that only thirteen Universities still have active seed evaluaation. Especially Seed Testing International No. The samples with the lowest relative error are the 0. The relative er- Call for Registration New as of June ! Evaluwtion other presentations were given during the course of the seminar on topics including tolerances, GM testing statistics, proficency tests, seed lot homogeneity testing, and germination testing.

This was in part suggested on the basis of the TZ staining of cotyledons after imbibition damage, where only the outer layers of cotyledon cells failed to stain Powell evaluaion Matthews, a. This is similar to the performance of accredited laboratories in germination PTs.

Several working groups are working on various numbers of items. The subsidiary decrees and regulations required to implement these new laws Table 1 Sub-components of Danida support to the seed sector in Vietnam are now being prepared.

At maturity, seeds of this species consist of a large elongated hypocotyl and small plumule Figure 1. Conversely, the drier the seed tissues, the lower the water potential and the greater the differential between the seed and the outside substrate, be it soak water, laboratory germination media or soil.

Hibbard and Millar found that eva,uation bulk samples of wheat, peas and timothy grass that showed wide ranges of germination, the conductivity of the soak water increased or in their measurement, the resistance to electricity decreased as germination decreased.


Nonetheless, it is also good to see that a substantial number of non-accredited laboratories demonstrate high levels of competence in these PTs which is an important prerequisite should they intend to become accredited at some stage. Identification of eevaluation factor associated with pigmentation that leads to reduced rates of water uptake, could lead to the introduction of this characteristic to unpigmented cultivars through breeding programmes, thereby By increasing the seed vigour of these cultivars.

More than of the plants of the Amazon forest have a recognised medicinal value and provide opportunities for development. A business plan will be elaborated. The trait is the qualitative attribute of a quantity of seed that a customer may want to have confirmed, possibly also quantified. The earliest example of EC as a vigour test was for castor bean Thomas, when performance in a soil test was related to the EC of seed soak water.

Workshops were also suggested as another way to broaden the education opportunities. Back issues from volume sita – 33 are also available for download as well as all future issues of Seed Science and Technology.

Box Lanseria Phone: In terms of the seed survival curve Figure 1 these seeds would be placed on the slow initial decline in germination. Annals of Botany, 63, Topics that will be covered include: Furthermore, you will always have a big section about the latest news from and around ISTA including the latest membership updates in the section of the Association News.

With the exception of S. Perhaps it was due to the fact that primary root was evaluated as decayed. This requires a systematic approach on appropriate seed material, taking account of some of the scientific understanding that we already have.
