LiveSeeding webinar “Hot water treatments for the sanitation of vegetable seeds”

Feb 20, 2024

Join us for the webinar on hot water treatments for the sanitation of vegetable seeds!
Hot water treatments are one method to sanitise seed in organic vegetable seed production. It is used to control seed-transmitted pathogens in several vegetable species and has been shown to be effective against fungal and bacterial plant pathogens. As this thermal treatment affects the inside layers of seeds with both heat and moisture, it needs to be mastered with care, know-how and experience, to avoid seriously degrading their germination capacity.  

In this webinar Dr. Jelena Baćanović-Šišić, plant pathologist in Bingenheimer Saatgut AG in Germany will explain their procedure and share their experience with hot water treatments.
