A seed needs moisture, oxygen, warmth, light, and soil to germinate. It cannot germinate if any of these conditions are missing.

Browning is caused by oxidation. Oxidation occurs when oxygen combines with another substance. Oxygen is present in the atmosphere and is necessary for life. However, if oxygen comes in contact with certain chemicals, such as iron, copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, aluminum, calcium, sodium, potassium, chlorine, sulfur, phosphorus, nitrogen, and other elements, the result is oxidation. This results in the formation of rust. Oxidized substances are usually dark brown or black. Browning may occur naturally or artificially. Natural oxidization is caused by exposure to air. Artificial oxidization is done intentionally. For instance, when you roast meat, the surface becomes darker due to oxidation.

Why do some seeds don’t germinate?

Seeds are tiny living organisms. Seeds are not alive but they are capable of growing into plants. So, they are called seedlings. Seedlings are very sensitive to environmental conditions. In order to get a good crop of seedlings, we need to provide the right environment for them. We need to give them enough light, moisture, air circulation, warmth and nutrients. If you put a seed in soil, it needs to be moistened well. It needs to be warm because cold temperatures slow down the growth process. Air circulation helps to prevent mold and mildew. Light is important for photosynthesis, which is the process by which plants convert sunlight energy into chemical energy food. Nutrients are essential for plant growth. Soil is composed of different types of particles. These particles help to hold water and nutrients. Soil consists of sand, clay, silt, and organic matter. Sand is the smallest particle. Clay is larger than sand but smaller than silt. Silt is between clay and sand. Organic matter is the largest particle.

These seeds are dead and cannot germinate into plants. Seeds that are viable are called "good seeds" and these seeds can germinate into healthy plants. To determine whether a seed is good or bad, simply shake the package of seeds vigorously. If the seeds fall out easily, they are good. If the seeds stick together, they are bad.
