Tobacco seed

Tobacco has perhaps the smallest seed of all the major horticultural and agronomic crops. Indeed, tobacco seed is so tiny that there are approximately 10000 seed per gram or 10 million per kilogram. This small seed size and the fact that the tobacco plant is a prolific producer of seed have combined to discourage much research on tobacco seed development and seed quality.

 

Now, however, rapid changes and advancements in transplant production technologies have placed a much greater importance on understanding seed development and those factors that may affect seed quality as measured by germination rates and seedling vigor. This chapter section will review the current state of knowledge of tobacco seed production and link that information to seed quality characteristics.
