About this book

Seed conditioning turns raw harvested seed into pure seed that is free of undesirable materials, safe from pests and diseases, and that which can be planted for a good stand of healthy plants of the desired crop. This compendium is based on real-life experiences, trials and efforts of many conditioners and has been compiled and distilled into a brief, easy-to-understand form.
