|Description of the Challenge||The challenge is to find a synthetic and easy-to-use method to determine the right seed harvesting time and its quality, especially related to its germinative power.|
Those who cultivate seed crops often have difficulty in ripeness assessment if not using classical analytical methods. The risk that often occurs is the harvesting of the seed in a non-optimal time. The availability of techniques and tools for rapid germinative power evaluation of seeds will be very useful for seller and for customer.
|Fundamental requirements and constraints||
The challenge is to find the right method and the most effective tools to correlate the chlorophyll content of the seeds with their quality and germinability. The method must allow for fast determination with ease of use and low costs.
