The electrophoretic method is used for the evaluation of seed storage proteins. In addition, the electrophoretic method can be used for cultivar identification and testing of seed purity of cultivars, while serological methods are suitable for identifying seed species and determining the species composition of the seed. mixtures. In addition, the serological method makes it possible to display the species specificity of the seed proteins. The shift in consumer preference towards a higher standard of food safety and quality, in terms of chemical residues, creates the need to maintain soil properties for quality production, thus enhancing the growth of the market over the years. forecast period.
