If you use seed from your own production in the garden, better take a close look below before sowing.
1. A bad or infested seed can jeopardize the entire crop and often creates problems for the soil.
2. As a general rule, a good quality seed must have a healthy look and needs to be uniform in terms of size.
3. A sick seed is recognizable by the spots on the surface and by the absence of its specific gloss.
4. Dry and shriveled seeds or those that display black, brown or pink dots are most likely sick.
5. When the bad seed number is low, they may be chosen carefully on a table.
When bad seeds are numerous you better avoid sowing them because the disease or pests will extend to the healthy ones.
