Seed is the most elementary and specific resource of agriculture and also the basic of agriculture production. To improve the quality of the seed is one of the important measure of insuring the high efficiency, quality and productivity of the agriculture production. And seed vigor is the important index of measuring the seed quality. Seed vigor tests are used by researchers to predict seedling emergence under field conditions. A seed vigor test can reflect the potential of seed in the field or under storage.
