The study is to make Industrial value chain more competitive for expert in the agricultural seedlings industry, The objectives are as fellow: 1.The assistance and set a ISO 9001 Cerification system in Taiwan tissue culture。 2.This study is aim to test the vigor of lettuce ( Lactuca sativa ) andBrassica oleracea （broccoli and cauliflower） seeds by different testing methods, including conductivity test and Q2 scanner detecting respiration rate. Compared with germination test, conductivity and Q2 scanner can rapidly estimate the seed lot quality and reduce the testing time from 10 days to 2 and 7 days of broccoli and cauliflower seeds; from 7 to 2 and 3 days of lettuce seed. The correlation between conductivity and germination test are high. The accuracy of Q2 scanner is low. But still can monitor seed quality effectively after correction.3.Completed the strawberry growth properties report in this year, the survey of field cultivated strawberry included plants: number (survival rate), plant height, plant width, leaf length, leaf width, petiole length, flower diameter, number of stems, fruit length, fruit width,fruit stalk length, fruit fresh weight, dry weight, sweetness and hardness. Meanwhile, the plants with good health and disease resistance were screened gradually, to cultivated variety preservation, and primary culture.4.The implementation of international seed inspection certificate of the export seed and commercial seed quality of the germination rate of quality testing. Statistics show that the issuance of ISTA Orange test certificate has 13 categories of crops,the total number of 51; Blue test certificate has 5 categories of crops, the total number of 8; English test certificate has13 categories of crops, the total number of 17. The total number of exports is 88 with a total weight of 27,702.65 kg. Commercial seed quality inspection the total number of 21 counties to send samples, the number total of 234 samples.
