Abstract/Contents:"A questionnaire relating to the methods for moisture determination used by the ISTA membership was circulated on an Association-wide basis. Seventy-two Stations from 39 countries sent in replies. The relative importance of species on which moisture determinations are carried out was established. As could be expected the importance of species varies considerably from one part of the world to another. It was also determined that (a) moisture tests are carried out on a large number of species not yet included in chapter 9 of the ISTA Rules, (b) many alternative methods to those prescribed in chapter 9 are used and (c) a strikingly large variety of equipment and materials is used for moisture testing. The survey produced very interesting and important information which could be used as a basis for future activities of the ISTA Seed Moisture and Storage Committee."
