Gomes Junior, Francisco Guilhien;Cicero, Silvio Moure;
Revista Brasileira de Sementes , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-31222012000100010
Abstract: the x-ray test is a precise, fast and non-destructive method to detect mechanical damage in seeds. in the present study, the efficiency of x-ray analysis in identifying the extent of mechanical damage in sweet corn seeds and its relationship with germination and vigor was evaluated. hybrid 'swb 551' (sh2) seeds with round (r) and flat (f) shapes were classified as large (l), medium (m1, m2 and m3) and small (s), using sieves with round and oblong screens. after artificial exposure to different levels of damage (0, 1, 3, 5 and 7 impacts), seeds were x-rayed (15 kv, 5 min) and submitted to germination (25 °c/5 days) and cold (10 °c/7 days) tests. digital images of normal and abnormal seedlings and ungerminated seeds from germination and cold tests were jointly analyzed with the seed x-ray images. results showed that damage affecting the embryonic axis resulted in abnormal seedlings or dead seeds in the germination and cold tests. the x-ray analysis is efficient for identifying mechanical damage in sweet corn seeds, allowing damage severity to be associated with losses in germination and vigor.

Abstract: Nowadays, image analysis is one of the most modern tools in evaluating physiological potential of seeds. This study aimed at verifying the efficiency of the seedling imaging analysis to assess physiological potential of wheat seeds. The seeds of wheat, cultivars IAC 370 and IAC 380, each of which represented by five different lots, were stored during four months under natural environmental conditions of temperature (T) and relative humidity (RH), in municipality of Piracicaba, Stated of S o Paulo, Brazil. For this, bimonthly assessments were performed to quantify moisture content and physiological potential of seeds by means of tests of: germination, first count, accelerated aging, electrical conductivity, seedling emergence, and computerized analysis of seedlings, using the Seed Vigor Imaging System (SVIS ). It has been concluded that the computerized analyses of seedling through growth indexes and vigor, using the SVIS , is efficient to assess physiological potential of wheat seeds.

Abstract: peanut seeds are considered difficult to produce because they often show unsatisfactory levels of germination and vigor due to many factors, including problems associated with fungi and a high sensitivity to mechanical injuries. in addition to treating peanut seeds with a fungicide, treatment with insecticides to control soil insect pests in the early growth stages is recommended. besides using the routine tests for evaluating the physiological potential of peanut seeds, computer analysis of seedlings has great potential because it is accurate, quick and without any human interpretation errors. this study aimed to evaluate the physiological potential and sanitary quality of peanut seeds treated with a fungicide, an insecticide, and a combination of both, using computerized analysis of seedlings. seeds of the cultivar iac 886, untreated and treated with the fungicide maxim xl (fludioxonil + metalaxyl), the insecticide cruiser 350 fs (thiamethoxam) and with a mixture of both products, were stored for periods of 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 180 days (20 °c, 50% air rh). after each storage period, seeds were evaluated for moisture content, germination, accelerated aging, seedling emergence in the field, electrical conductivity and seed pathology, as well as a computer analysis of the seedlings. it was concluded that computer analysis of peanut seedlings has an efficiency which is equivalent to tests on seeds for accelerated aging and seedling emergence in the field for identifying treatment differences in the absence or presence of a fungicide and a fungicide associated with an insecticide.

Abstract: bean seed (phaseolus vulgaris l.) quality is greatly affected by harvesting, drying, handling and storage activities during the seed production process. in these operations, seeds collide repeatedly against metal surfaces predisposing them to mechanical damage. in this context, this investigation studied the effect of the amount and different impact pressures on bean seed quality. seeds from one lot of the iac-carioca dry bean cultivar were thrown by means of an air jet at two different pressures (551.6 and 965.3 kpa) one, three and five times against a metal surface positioned at a distance of 30cm. a factorial squeme was used with two evaluation times (before and after storage), two pressures and three numbers of impacts. mechanical damage was evaluated by image analysis using x-rays of the seeds and digital photographs of the seedlings. seed physiological quality was evaluated by germination and vigor tests before and after four months storage. the results showed a direct relationship between the increase in the amount and pressures of impact and the decrease in seed physiological quality; the impact pressure provided more severe and immediate effects than the number of impacts. the image analysis technique allowed the understanding of the effect of the mechanical damage that appeared inside the seeds. in this way image analysis proved to be an interesting technique to study mechanical damage in bean seeds.

Chiquito, Adrielle Aparecida;Gomes Junior, Francisco Guilhien;Marcos-Filho, Julio;
Revista Brasileira de Sementes , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-31222012000200010
Abstract: the software seed vigor imaging system (svis?), has been successfully used to evaluate seed physiological potential by automated analyses of scanned seedlings. in this research, the efficiency of this system was compared to other tests accepted for assessing cucumber (cucumis sativus l.) seed vigor of distinct seed lots of supremo and safira cultivars. seeds were subjected to germination, traditional and saturated salt accelerated aging, seedling emergence, seedling length and svis analyses (determination of vigor indices and seedling growth uniformity, lengths of primary root, hypocotyl and whole seedlings). it was also determined whether the definition of seedling growth/uniformity ratios affects the sensitivity of the svis?. results showed that analyses svis have provided consistent identification of seed lots performance, and have produced information comparable to those from recommended seed vigor tests, thus demonstrating a suitable sensitivity for a rapid and objective evaluation of physiological potential of cucumber seeds. analyses of four-days-old cucumber seedlings using the svis? are more accurate and growth/uniformity does not affect the precision of results.
