SILVA, Clíssia Barboza da; LOPES, Magnólia de Mendonça; MARCOS-FILHO, Julio  e  VIEIRA, Roberval Daiton. Automated system of seedling image analysis (SVIS) and electrical conductivity to assess sun hemp seed vigor. Rev. bras. sementes [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.1, pp.55-60. ISSN 0101-3122.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31222012000100007.

The development of new procedures for quickly obtaining accurate information on the physiological potential of seed lots is essential for developing quality control programs for the seed industry. In this study, the effectiveness of an automated system of seedling image analysis (Seed Vigor Imaging System - SVIS) in determining the physiological potential of sun hemp seeds and its relationship with electrical conductivity tests, were evaluated. SVIS evaluations were performed three and four days after sowing and data on the vigor index and the length and uniformity of seedling growth were collected. The electrical conductivity test was made on 50 seed replicates placed in containers with 75 mL of deionised water at 25 ºC and readings were taken after 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 hours of imbibition. Electrical conductivity measurements at 4 or 8 hours and the use of the SVIS on 3-day old seedlings can effectively detect differences in vigor between different sun hemp seed lots.
