Seed Science and Technology

The facilities at Maringá State University for teaching, researching, and extending to the rural community the usual methods for controlling the quality of seed lots are first located at Iguatemi Research Farm (23°25´ SL; 51°57´ WL, 550 m of altitude), Iguatemi County; the second building is located at NUPAGRI - Agricultural Research and Development Centre (23º26'S ; 51º53'W), Maringá County; the third seed laboratory is located at Umuarama campus (23º47'S ; 53º15'W), Umuarama County, northwestern Paraná, Brazil. The essential components of these seed laboratories are: glasshouse for studying and producing pot and bedding plants,  meteorological  station  for  reporting

basic weather conditions, irrigation system for maintaining the soil humidity under control, and seed storage room (10°C, 40%-RH) for preserving germplasm under a short-term purpose. Lectures on Seed Production and Technology (4492) are introduced to under-graduation students at third-year of Agronomy (DAG), agronomists and seed biologists under post-graduation; these seed laboratories are offering scientific and technical support for Master Science and Doctor Science dissertation/theses in   seed   production  and  technology  of

 soybean (Glycine max L. Merril),  hybrid seeds of pop-corn and sweet-corn (Zea mays L.) in conjunction with the post-graduation programmes of Agronomy (PGA), Genetic and Plant Breeding (PGM), and the seed ecology of plant populations from preserved ecosystems in conjunction with the post-graduation programme of Comparative Biology (PGB).

The current researches are concentrated on statistical models for describing seed lot vigour and the performance of seed lots under germination using Cecropia pachystachya Trec., various ecotypes of Panicum maximum, soybean varieties (Glycine max L. Merril),  the  landrace  cultivar  of  Stevia   rebaudiana   (Bert)   Bertoni,
