Title
(EN) SEED STERILISATION PROCESS
(FR) PROCEDE DE STERILISATION DE SEMENCES
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention seeks to address the problem of providing an effective process and apparatus for surface sterilisation of seed in advance of field sowing of the seed. In a preferred embodiment the process involves immersing the seed inside a porous vessel (2) in a water bath (1) containing a solution of DEOSAN COLD THERM (TM) sterilant and agitating the seed and/or solution to ensure substantially complete surface exposure of the seed to the solution for an adequate time to allow the sterilant to take effect without harming the seed, and subsequently drying the seed (6). Apparatus for carrying out this process is also disclosed.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif servant à stériliser la surface de semences préalablement à l'ensemencement d'un champ. Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, le procédé consiste à immerger la semence à l'intérieur d'un bassin poreux (2) dans un bain d'eau (1) contenant une solution du produit de stérilisation DEOSAN COLD THERM (TM) et à agiter la semence et/ou la solution, de manière à exposer pratiquement totalement la surface de la semence à ladite solution pendant une durée suffisante pour que le produit soit efficace sans détériorer la semence, puis à sécher la semence (6). L'invention concerne également le dispositif de mise en application du procédé.
