Abstract
Seed production of cucumber differs from mercantile production and has a number of specific characteristics. The conditions of successful production are the selection of plots, the proper selection of pre-crop and adequate and timely irrigation. When fertilizing, there have to be taken into account the feeding of nutrients, the state of fertility of the soil and the planned yield of the fruit (although only seed is extracted). The factors of key importance include: sow density, cropping, hoeing between rows of crops, the protection of crop from weeds, causes of diseases and pests and the moment of harvesting the fruit. Other important factors are the determination of ripening, the duration of fermentation, washing and drying of seed. As with any seed production, there are to be observed legal regulations regarding spatial isolation, varietal purity and adult-ration with other plant species and weeds. Only the production and trade of seed of cucumber varieties included in the list of agricultural and forestry varieties is permitted. The minimum seed quality prescribed by the law: the minimum purity of 98%, the minimum germination of 80%, no presence of weeds and other plant species, while the maximum moisture in the seed is 14%.
