Germination Characteristics Analysis

Germination energy, germinative capacity, and water sensitivity are included in this analytical package.

Germination Characteristics


Germinative energy measures the percentage of barley that germinates with vigor in a sample, germinative capacity measures the viability of the barley, and water sensitivity measures the samples tendency to germinate after long periods of submersion. These characteristics are affected by environmental and storage conditions of barley.
