Agricultural quality assessment is pivotal in crop production, plant conservation, and species management. Agricultural science X-ray imaging can help determine the exact location and extent of mechanical damage such as cracks, insect infestation, and deteriorated tissue damage in the seeds.
With an X-ray image, the researcher can determine the ability of the seed to germinate.
Other applications include:
- Plant/seed contamination
- Seed density
- Easy identification of empty and filled seeds
