Seed characteristrics, storage behavior and viability equation of Jatropha curcas (L.)

submitted by: UP Los Baños
A report presented during the SEARCA ( www.searca.org ) Agriculture and Development Seminar Series on the research project aimed to establish the seed technology of J. curcas and find out its viability constants. Specifically the projects aimed to 1) to characterize and evaluate the morphological and chemical properties of J. curcas seeds, 2) develop procedures for optimum seed drying, quality testing (viability and vigor tests and moisture content determination), and storage of J. curcas...
