Tetrazolium Salt

Germination percentage is a good measurement of seed quality. One disadvantage of conventional germination tests is that they require a waiting period of two weeks or more. The Tetrazolium test is a biochemical test that can be conducted in a short period of time with minimal equipment, and results are produced as a percentage viability. The test uses these Tetrazolium salts in a combination of staining and sequential sampling. It can also be applied to individual seeds that remain hard and fresh but have not germinated at the end of a germination test. Supplied in 100g pack.
