This is a very good question, maybe I can talk my cohorts into doing a
side by side study on some wheat seeds. It would be interesting to see if
there are true differences. I do see emergence differences on old stored
seed compared to say the current year's crop. The seeds germinate but are
sometimes slower and without the vigor to emerge as fast as new seed.
I'm sure that some poor grad student has done his masters on this.
