Abstract:This paper deals with the contributions seed technology can provide for soybean breeding programs for seed quality. Efforts can be placed on seed quality assurance (DIACOM) to assist the production system, from genetic up to certified seed in releasing a product of high quality. Another approach is the development of screening methods, based on seed technology tests (vigor tests), for selecting genotypes according to different traits relating to seed quality. An understanding of seed quality mechanisms, such a… Show more
