    The use of good quality seed is a prerequisite for the satisfactory production of a good quality crop and is essential for commercial farms. The following points should be taken into account when considering seed quality:

    Trueness to type (often referred to as variety purity).

    Satisfactory germination and vigour.

    Freedom from other materials, including plant debris, dead or broken seeds, seeds of other crops, weed seeds, noxious and parasitic weed seeds also non-plant materials.

    Freedom from seed-borne pests and diseases.

    Good quality seed is essential for the high yield hydroponics. Although some gardeners save their own seed, our club offers free to members packets of high yield commercial grade seeds. See Pete Funnell for details of what is currently available.
