Researches vigor testing recommendations for seeds of Rudbeckia fulgida, since this species has exhibited variable seed storage and germination potential. Germinating seeds in soilless, the media of the seed quality of Rudbeckia fulgida may be evaluated using two vigor testing methods: bulk conductivity and accelerated aging tests.
