Objectives of the Course
After completion of the course the students will be; • obtain detailed information about seed quality, propertise of with quality seed, to eliminate or reduce the effects of some endogenous compounts or enviromental factors in the seeds which have an adverse effect to germination/emergence problems. • the students being able to apply pre-sowing seeds priming treatments.
