Instability of weather conditions, particularly fluctuation in rainfall, is among the chief factors that affect seed production in … This quality character is important for achieving the desired goal of raising the crop either yield or for resistance or for desired quality factors. Surface area is an important factor. Physiological Quality: It is the actual expression of seed in further generation / multiplication. Physiological quality characters of seed comprises of seed germination and seed vigour. PPT Slide. Seed Storage and Risk Characteristics of Quality Seed Factors that Affect Seed Quality How to Maximize & Maintain Quality. 20 Factors Affecting Dried Food Quality: Surface Area. Factors impeding high performance of the seed sector in the region are all interrelated and therefore deserve attention if high quality seed production and utilization is to be achieved. INTERNATIONAL SEED TESTING ASSOCIATION (ISTA) Concluding comments Seed quality: Multiple components –Most important components •Cultivar purity •Analytical purity •Germination –Other significant components •Vigour •Seed borne pathogens •Moisture content Measurement of seed quality Some of these factors are related to plant, others are related to environment and cultural practices. Tomato production can serve as a source of income for most rural and periurban producers in most developing countries of the world. Postharvest losses in tomatoes can be either quantitative or qualitative. FACTORS AFFECTING CROP PRODUCTION ...

Presentation Summary : Factors Affecting Dried Food Quality: Surface Area. For example, it is desirable to produce fine rice with pleasant aroma, wheat with high milling quality, maize with a high percentage of marketable grain to stalk, cotton with long fibres, groundnut with low percentage of hull, sugarcane with high sucrose, potatoes with good cooking quality etc. The quality of crop produced is as important as the quantity produced, or more important than that. Postharvest losses in tomatoes can be as high as 42% globally. Grain Quality and Storage Characteristics of Grains and Oil Seeds. However, postharvest losses make its production unprofitable in these parts of the world. The greater the exposed surface area is, the faster the food dries. Pre-harvest factors affecting shelf life and quality of fruit crops Author: Pawan Singh Gurjar Several pre-harvest and post-harvest factors affect the quality and shelf life of horticultural crops.
