Abstract

An improved indoxyl acetate test for detecting seedcoat cracks in soybeans was developed and compared to sodium hypochlorite and tetrazolium tests. The indoxyl acetate test detected seedcoat damage which was often undetected by the other two tests and visual observation alone. The indoxyl acetate test did not have any adverse effect on warm germination percentages of undamaged seeds.
