Conditioning Shriveled Soybean Seed Part II. Correlation of Physiological Characteristics with Physical Properties
The physiological properties of samples at different stages during conditioning of shrivelled soybean seedlots were analyzed and correlated with physical properties. Conditioning improved seed viability and vigor. Operation capacities needed to be reduced to obtain optimal separation of shrivelled seeds with minimal loss of good seeds. Correlations of shrivelled seeds with germination, cold, stress, oil and yield tests presented a negative trend.
