Abstract

Triphenyltetrazolium chloride was developed by Professor George Lakon as a test for viability in seed. It is fast becoming an accepted test, but there is still much to be established and learned about it. German seed breeding stations have been using it in testing for viability in oats and rye seed. Here in the United States, Professors R. P. Moore and Ewald Smith of North Carolina State College and North Carolina State Seed laboratory have bean doing extensive research on its usability as a test on a variety of small seed.
