Description: To the nursery industry in Canada, seed enhancing and upgrading techniques have ever increasingly become and are now an integral part of their operations prior to greenhouse sowing. The terms "enhancing" and "upgrading" can be used interchangeably, but they essentially mean the same thing. It's the idea of improving the quality of initial processed seed, which can be accomplished in many ways. Our upgrading work encompasses a number of coniferous species, such as white, red, jack, and lodgepole pine, and white, black, Engelmann, and blue spruce.

Keywords: seed processing, IDS, seed cleaning, PREVAC, seed quality, seed purity
