Posted on Dec 9 By: JEREMY BOYCHYN | MSC P.AG | AGRONOMY RESEARCH EXTENSION SPECIALIST

This episode of The Growing Point podcast includes a conversation with Carey and Kelly regarding how seed testing occurs and what that means for managing that seed lot and your crop. Germination rates, vigour, disease and more can all affect your crop establishment and in-crop concerns. We go into detail about how these tests are conducted, and how each result should play a role in your decision making. Heading into seeding season, this podcast will help answer some questions around crop/seed planning and management.
