Aim: Study the relation of liposoluble components, kernel weight to germination rate and investigate the quality characteristics of Salvia (Savia miltiorrhiza) seeds with different geographic origins. Methods: The liposoluble components were analyzed by HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography). Data was analyzed with SPSS. Results: Correlation coefficient of kernel weight and germination rate was 0.7990, and that of liposoluble components and germination rate was 0.0785. From data analysis, we concluded that kernel weight related to germination rate most and liposoluble components can be used as an indicator of geographic origins of Salvia seeds.
