ABSTRACT

waxy corn or glutinous corn is a special type of corn that has a delicious taste, is more savory, fluffier and
softer. Seed quality consists of three components, namely: physical quality, physiological quality, genetic
quality. This study aims to determine and study the quality of waxy corn seeds in Bolaang Mongondow
Regency. The research was conducted in Manado. This research took place from September to October 2020.
This experiment used a completely randomized design (CRD), with 3 (three) treatments, namely the source of
waxy corn seeds from several villages in Bolaang Mongondow Regency consisting of treatment P1 = seeds
from the village Treatment Threshold P2 = Seed from Pusian Village Treatment P3 = Seed from Insil Village.
Each treatment was repeated 4 (four) times in order to obtain 12 experimental units. Result of the experiment
showed The waxy corn in Ambang Village has a different quality from the quality of the seeds from Pusian
Village and Insil Village. The quality of seed in Desa Ambang was characterized by germination rate of 88%,
vigor index of 79%, synchronous growth of 86% and germinating speed of 28.44% / etmal. The seed quality
of Pusian Village is characterized by germination rate of 99%, vigor index of 83%, synchronous growth of
98% and germinating speed of 31.53% / etmal and Village of Insil which has 100% germination, vigor index
