Seed Enhancement and Seed Germplasm
Call for Papers
Germplasm is the foundation of plant breeding and has been collected officially for over 100 years mostly through seed. The study on techniques for seed enhancement has been a hot area of research for decades. Seed enhancements are postharvest treatments that improve germination or seedling growth and facilitate the delivery of healthy and viable seeds at the time of sowing. Seed enhancements are ‘value-added’ techniques that are implemented after harvest, but prior to seed sowing. With the development of enhancement techniques, seeds play a more important role in seed trade. The studies on seed germplasm contribute to the improvement of seed management strategies, preservation of genetic diversity, characterization, and utilization.
This issue will cover all aspects of study involved in seed enhancement and seed germplasm.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Seed quality: vigour, health, etc.
- Seed priming, coating, anticounterfeiting, dormancy breaking, etc.
- Seed processing
- Seed drying and storage
- Seed germplasm management
- Seed germplasm evaluation and utilization
- Seed core collection
