How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Currently my responsibility is to verify seed quality by seed testing, moisture content and germination test. Samples that had been tested is vegetables seed such as chilli, tomato, brinjal, long bean, winged bean etc. Second responsibility is in field inspection for seed foundation production of paddy.

The most promising new area for the commercialisation of space is in the field of microgravity. Microgravity allows new materials to be developed which cannot be replicated on earth. Chilli, a very important vegetable crop is prone to viral diseases and anthracnose and breeding for resistance towards these diseases has resulted in very little succe...
Okra (Abelmoschus esculenthus) is a vegetable plant consumed in immature and tender texture fruits. Crosses of local okra with introduced varieties are carried out to improve the character of the local cultivars. This study aimed to assess the variability of agronomic characters, both quantitative and qualitative characters of various families of t...
Chili is one of the most important crops grown commercially because it has a high economic value and it is often consumed daily in most parts of the world. However, chilli seed has varies seed quality and vigour. Thus, the aim of this study was to determine the effect of priming on germination and seedling emergence growth of chilli seed cv. L5, an...
Duration of drying using sun-drying method on chilli seeds was observed varies from two to seven days depending on ambient conditions. Prolong exposures to high temperature and high relative humidity conditions cause rapid seed deterioration (UC Davis, 2015; Malik CP and Jyoti, 2013; Nassari et al., 2014). Therefore, this study was aimed to evaluat...
To determine the effects of seed priming using hydropriming, halopriming and hormonal priming on seed quality and plant growth of chili and tomato
