How to Pick Seeds
The quality of crop seeds determines the basis of crop yield and income. Therefore, it is necessary to carefully screen the seeds and avoid buying inferior seeds. The following describes the selection method of seeds.
Before buying seeds, you need to have a good understanding of the local climate characteristics. According to the local climatic characteristics, select the suitable strains for planting. Determine the planting strain, and then select the seeds according to the climate of the planting area. If the temperature in the planting area is relatively high, the varieties that are relatively resistant to high temperature should be selected. The temperature in the planting area is relatively cold, and varieties with better cold resistance should be purchased.
When selecting seeds, you should choose a larger seed company for purchase, and you should fully understand the characteristics of the seeds, compare them with several seed companies, and determine the variety based on the environment of the planting area and market demand.
Read the variety description carefully to determine how to sow, what conditions are suitable for growth, and the germination rate of seeds. And check the specific performance of this variety in the planting process on the Internet.
When buying seeds, be sure not to buy seeds in bulk. The seeds of crops can only be sold after they have been processed and packaged. When buying seeds, you must ask the production date and shelf life. The germination rate of expired seeds is very low, or even not germinated. If the seeds exceed the shelf life, you need to communicate with the merchant and replace them in time. If it is the same series of varieties, generally choose the newly developed and approved varieties, and the characteristics of the new varieties will be better than the old varieties.
Do not buy varieties that are not grown locally in large quantities. Without field planting, you cannot determine whether this variety is suitable for the local environment. It is recommended to purchase a small amount for trial planting, and then decide whether to plant in the future according to the field planting situation, comprehensive consideration of crop quality and yield.
Do not blindly pursue varieties with high yields, and stable yields are very important. Varieties with stable yields have strong adaptability, are less affected by the environment, and the yield drop will not be too large. Only those with high yields should be considered when the environment is suitable.
In the selection of varieties, the varieties with strong disease resistance and stress resistance are preferentially used, which can effectively reduce the use of pesticides, reduce the occurrence of diseases and reduce production costs.
