Germination & Seed Count

Germination of Seeds Standards:

To achieve our aim of providing our gardeners and commercial growers with the highest quality agricultural seed available that also fits our ethical profile, NIKITOVKASeeds tests our seeds regularly for seed germination , vigour and for the presence of weed seeds. All the seeds we sell meet, or exceed the Ukrainian standards established by the Ukraine Agricultural Standards for Seed quality. The number found on each package of seeds refers to specific lots, which we use for quality control. Germination varies each year.

Seeds per Gram:

Our seed counts (seeds per gram) are estimates only, based on grower sample counts and the standards as set out by the Ukrainian Agricultural Department. Seed counts vary with each harvest and lot, sometimes dramatically. This number is provided as a guide for gardeners and growers to calculate productivity. These seed counts are useful as ESTIMATES ONLY and do not always reflect exact seed counts. Our seeds are packed by Seed Packaging Machine, by weight.
