Use of Time Temperature Monitors for Controlling Seedling Quality in Storage

i—Point® time—temperature monitors (TTM) were evaluated for their use as quality indicators for loblolly pine seedlings. TTM indicators, activated at the time of seedling packing, accumulate the effects of time and temperature during seedling storage and change color when specified limits are exceeded. TTM indicators have considerable potential as a quality control method for seedling storage. The greatest limitation in their use is the lack of good data on the storage time—temperature relationships for tree seedlings.
