    Nondestructive in situ monitoring of pea seeds germination using optical coherence tomography

    Seed germination and uniform plant stand in the field are the most critical crop growth stages determining the final yield. Pea ( Pisum sativum L .) seeds production is often hampered due to the seed dormancy caused by the hard seed coat. Such effect is mainly attributed to poor or uneven germination and unsynchronised seedling emergence. Understanding the time course of water intake and several critical germination indicators can reveal many features of seed germination such as rate and uniformity. This paper used optical coherence tomography (OCT), a noninvasive and cross-sectional imaging technique, to monitor the inner structural changes throughout the germination ...
