Emergence Count

The emergence count is an assessment of seeds which have visibly begun to germinate within a prescribed period after a germination test has been started, usually 24 or 48 hours. Only seeds that produce a radicle (embryonic root) are counted, since seedlings that emerge with any other structures first are often abnormal.
