Moisture Dependent Electrical Parameter as an Indicator of Germination of Seed: A Case Study of Poppy Seed
Pradeep Kumar, Satyendra Pratap Singh , Rajiv Manohar and J.P. Shukla

Abstract:
The moisture dependent electrical properties of medicinally and nutritionally important Poppy seed have been reported in the present paper. The dielectric constant, dielectric loss and conductivity have been measured for Indian poppy seed over the temperature range 15-45°C at varying frequency i.e., from 5 KHz to 10 MHZ. The measurements have been carried out using electrical impedance spectroscopy. The electrical properties were found to increase with increases in moisture content. The electrical properties for non-viable seed (Dead seed) have also been measured and compared with the properties of viable seeds for different moisture levels. This comparison suggests that dialectic constant could be taken as an indicator of viability of seeds.
