Germination Test Methods logo

An important note regarding our germination test methods:

Our methods are dynamic. We may begin with rules listed in standardized germination tests, but we are always trying to improve the accuracy of the results. Consequently, these methods may change over time and in the overwhelming majority of cases will not reflect what are listed in seed germination handbooks or manuals. The germination test methods are provided to let you know how we obtained the percent germination, dormancy, and overall viability as listed on the seed packet sent to you.
