Seeds constitute the back bone of agriculture production. For manufacturers and distributors it is important to know the viability and productivity and longevity of seeds, which can save them both time and money.
Researchers from the University of Belgrade have developed a new methodology of determining seeds viability and aging, which provides various advantages.
This new method for seeds viability uses combination of thermal imaging technology in a chamber programmable environmental conditions and the quantification of visual information together with selective non-invasive testing methods. Collected measured parameters values of the environment and seeds are used to quantify the viability status of seeds and the life assessment analysis.
This system has a lot of advantages:
A prototype of this technology has been made and tested to examine seed life ability, and is the subject of new national patent application.
This technology was invented by researchers at the University of Belgrade Institute for Multidisciplinary Research.
We are looking for potential licensees and collaborators to develop and commercialise the invention.
