Abstract

An analysis of the previous method for testing tolerances of noxious weed seeds was performed. Problems of the current techniques were discussed, and the solution to these problems was given.

A new technique of testing through the sequential test ratio was developed, and results examined.

The sequential test was found to be useful enough to include the use of it in determining tolerances for noxious weed seeds.

This study did show that the use of sequential tests does have excellent potential and flexibility as a statistical tool for the tolerances of noxious weed seeds. (75 pages)
