Soil temperature for planting tomato seed
There is great diversity in the tomato varieties that we offer; which makes the general information provided only valuable as adjustable guidelines. This may also affect your seed planting and propagation strategies and the germination rates under your planting conditions may vary from the seed lot test results. The following soil temperature data is for tomatoes in general. Temperatures are average daytime from planting to emergence. Percentage is average germination rate. Days is number of days to emergence.
41ºF x 0% x 0 days; 50ºF x 82% x 43 days; 59ºF x 98% x 14 days; 68ºF x 98% x 8 days; 77ºF x 97% x 6 days; 86ºF x 83% x 6 days; 95ºF x 46% x 9 days;
TIPS: SEED STORAGE
When seeds are brought to storage already dried to proper moisture levels (usually around 8%), paper envelopes or burlap bags with surrounding air flow of consistent temperatures (usually best between 35F - 40F) makes good economic sense. Bins with forced ventilation controlled by temperature and moisture monitors can be more economical when on a larger scale because you can compensate for larger fluctuations in either of temperature or moisture. And on a smaller scale, paper envelopes and cloth bags stored in the house in a drawer that is away from direct sunlight, exterior doors, appliances, and heating equipment and vents will make good economic sense. A cedar cabinet is good, but strewn wormwood leaves or moth balls may do as well to repel the pests. Vapor barrier packaging such as sealed foil, cans, jars and plastic bags can have possible advantages for keeping insects and varmints away from your local seed storage, but, unless used for transport, the local environment must be considered to choose a vapor barrier package because temperature consistency becomes even more important when condensation can form within the package. Enough moisture cannot be removed to keep some seeds viable for a very long term in a vapor sealed container, but if you live in the hurricane prevalent area and have a leaky roof use the moisture sealed packaging and just don't expect to get the 1,500 year life that we got in an Arizona cave, or the several thousand years we heard about with a grain from an Egyptian silo. Consider your environment and watch the moisture, temperature, insects, and varmints, as closely as your $philosophy affords.   Some people let the rats take their cut.
