# GermPercent: Germination percentage In germinationmetrics: Seed Germination Indices and Curve Fitting

## Description

Compute the germination percentage or final germination percentage or germinability.

## Usage

 1 GermPercent(germinated.seeds, germ.counts, total.seeds, partial = TRUE) 

## Arguments

 germinated.seeds Number of germinated seeds germ.counts Germination counts at each time interval. Can be partial or cumulative as specified in the argument partial. total.seeds Total number of seeds. partial logical. If TRUE, germ.counts is considered as partial and if FALSE, it is considered as cumulative. Default is TRUE.

## Details

Germination percentage is computed as follows \insertCiteista_chapter_2015germinationmetrics. \loadmathjax

\mjsdeqn

GP = \fracN_gN_t \times 100

Where, \mjseqnN_g is the number of germinated seeds and \mjseqnN_t is the total number of seeds.

The value of \mjseqnN_g can be either specified using the argument germinated.seeds or is computed from the germ.counts argument.

## Value

The germination percentage (%) value.
