Will irradiation kill seeds???

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

I am wondering with the irradiation planned by the P.O. if it will kill seeds.???? If it kills living organisims, will it make carrots the size of a house (ha ha) or kill the seed? Or will it be changed at all?? My sister sent me some dill seeds and they were returned to her. I guess they sounded too strange or something.

Good question! My guess is it would kill them for sure! Something to think about in a couple of months when we all start ordering seed for our gardens. Wish I had saved more seed than I did!
