Sorting, protecting and priming seeds and evaluation of the seed quality are innovated. The combination of seed research and sensor innovation at Fytagoras opens new perspectives for the seed industry. Our team offers seed research and seed technology expertise to both seed companies and research institutions.

 

Fytagoras’ expertise for evaluation and optimizing seed:

  • Oxygen measurements on individual seeds for seed quality evaluation (See also SRA).
  • Regulation of seed germination through innovative priming (Oxyprime)
  • Seed pathogen reduction by means of PRF (Pulsed Radio Frequency electrical fields)

 

Fytagoras’ CSO Dr. van Duijn is chairman of the Advanced Technologies Committee (ATC) of the ISTA.
