Seeding Success: Innovative Seed Processing Machinery

Priming refers to the deliberate adjustment of a seed's hydration level, a practice that can enhance the uniform emergence of seedlings, a critical factor for achieving a consistent harvest. Additionally, priming can help mitigate heat-induced seed dormancy in many essential crops. For crops requiring light for germination, priming can prepare seeds to germinate in darkness. Notably, lettuce seeds are commonly subjected to priming due to their susceptibility to heat and light-induced seed dormancy, which priming can effectively alleviate.

During the seed preparation process, seeds are carefully moistened to a predetermined and controlled hydration level. At this point, certain metabolic processes crucial for germination are initiated. Once the seeds have attained the desired hydration level, they are maintained at this state until all seeds within the batch have achieved the same status. The hydration level is halted at a point that prevents root emergence while allowing the seed to dry without causing permanent damage. By employing these prepared seeds, plant growth occurs more rapidly and without complications. Esde offers a unique drum preparation method, specifically designed to meet your needs.
