Heterogeneity in green panic seed

Prodonoff, E.T. and Bean, F.E. (1969) Heterogeneity in green panic seed. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 26 (2). pp. 215-23.



Purity analysis carried out on 3 lines of green panic seed grown by 1 seed producer showed a wide variation in pure seed from bag to bag, pure seed content varying from >40% by weight to <1% by weight in 2 lines of seed each consisting of 10 bags. Pure seed contents in the remaining line of 3 bags were 67.7, 34.4, and 13.0%, respectively. Subsequent machine cleaning improved the percentage of pure seed, but failed to produce a uniform seed mixture. -F.A.S.
