Mandate

Development of seed science and technology in the context of procuring quality seeds/seedlings.

Domain and Scope

A container for the development of seed science and technology in the context of procuring seeds, which includes:

  • Development of seed science through the study of anatomy, reproductive biology, physiology, biochemistry, health, and seed modeling
  • Development of production technology, processing, storage, testing and quality control of seeds
  • Development of production technology and quality control of certified seedlings
  • Review of seed regulations, policies, and institutions

Main Research Topics

  • Research on the biology of seed plant reproduction in the framework of producing quality seeds
  • Research and development of seed production technologies including seeds and artificial seeds
  • Research on handling and storage in order to maintain seed viability and vigor
  • Research on seed invigoration
  • Biological seed treatment research to improve health and seed quality
  • Development of methods and techniques for seed analysis
  • Development of seed modeling
  • Study on seed system and policy
  • Design and development of processing, testing, and simulation tools for storing seeds
