Not subject to damage or injury from attack by a particular disease causing organism
or virus by a particular insect or for certain conditions of soil or climate.
Capable to some degree of enduring an attack by a particular insect or disease
causing agent, or able to withstand certain adverse conditions of growth. Resistant
or slightly susceptible varieties may be expected to survive all but the most
severe infestation or other specified adverse conditions, though yield and quality
may be somewhat affected.
Easily subjected to injury or damage from attack by a particular disease causing
organism or a particular insect or even from adverse soil or climate conditions.
Moderately susceptible varieties may be expected to survive and produce an exceptable
crop under moderately adverse conditions, but they also may be expected to become
affected if conditions that are highly favorable to the disease or insect continue
for a long period. A Tolerant variety is usually easier to protect from damage
by a particular disease, insect or adverse condition than a Susceptible variety.
Some of the seeds we carry are coated with a fungicide, insecticide or both to
protect seed during storage. Seed will be clearly marked if treated. The treated
seed should never be used for edible seed purposes. Seed treatments do not effect
the plant that grows from seed.
