It seeks to make a broad understanding of the various pieces that make up the jigsaw puzzle of this science, and probes into the potential and the future of this industry. This book begins the explo-ration and introduction of seed science by giving an overview of the basic elements like viability, vigour, quality and dormancy. The commercial and economic relevance of this industry is given an indepth insigh into. Apart from that, the different aspects of seed reponse to the environment, such as effects of pre-and post harvest environment on seed and consequence of subsequent test, have been thoroughly probed.
