THE STORAGE OF PASTURE SEEDS
AbstractEfficient seed storage is an essential part of a-good farm&& economy. In grassland farming it-is obviously desirable that the seeds. relied on for the establishment of new pastures should not deteriorate in ,the time between harvesting and sowing. Though a high standard of care is' generally exercised in the main seed stores, serious deterioration sometimes occurs, especially with seeds received in bad condition from the grower. More frequent instances of rapid deterioration are found in retailers' stores and during shipment. These losses are undoubtedly avoidable.
