The Mobile Chlorophyll Analyser (MCA) is a compact instrument that determines quickly, the maturity of seeds through chlorophyll fluorescence. The seeds are placed in a aluminium tray and within minutes results are shown. This machine can be used in the production field, a seed processing plant, warehouse or in a seed laboratory.
Chlorophyll level on a seed is linked to the maturity of that seed, and this maturity determines the potential of germination, vigour and shelf life of the seed.

Once seed has been coated with active ingredients it is helpful to know how effectively that seed treatment stays on the seed. Centor Oceania are able to test this for you using the Heubach Dustmeter. This can be achieved by using either; the standards set by the ESA, or by Centor Oceania’s extended dust testing methodology.
The results will give a good indication of how well your seed treatment protocol is working.
