Determining the quality of white ash seed lots by X-ray analysis

White ash (Fraxinus Americana L.) seed production in 197-1 in northern Ohio was spotty and generally of low quality. As part of a larger study it was necessary for us to obtain as high a percentage of filled, viable seed as possible for subsequent treatment. X-ray analysis seemed to offer good possibilities for upgrading the quality of our seed collections for later experiments. We therefore determined the correlation between seed appearance on X-rays and subsequent germination.
