The storage behaviour of seeds
thesisposted on 2023-05-27, 15:27 authored by Sutrisno,
The importance of storing seed for future use may have been recognised since the early age of civilisation. Priestley believed that the early development of agriculture in Neolithic times took place when people began to keep a portion of the harvest for planting the following season. Archaeological evidence cited in his review suggested that \seed for sowing may well have been subjected to privileged treatment\". As agriculture developed people improved their understanding of seed storage behaviour and developed more suitable methods of storage for maintenance of viability."
