Seed Technologists Training Manual

The new Seed Technologists Training Manual is a significant contribution to seed technologist literature and will prove a valuable resource as both a teaching tool and reference for seed technologists and the seed trade.  It provides a thorough grounding in contemporary seed technology, plus introduces new technologies, using a liberally illustrated format that is reinforced with exercises, study questions, references and glossary.

The Seed Technologists Training Manual is an up-to-date, in-depth, tool that I consider a valuable resource for all seed analysts. It will be on the top of our recommended list for our short courses. My hat is off to the writers, the editors and sponsors of this wonderful, comprehensive manual.

There is something in this manual for all seed technologist from the beginning analyst to the most experienced analyst who wants to keep abreast of their profession.
