physiological features (shape, size, surface area, 1000 grain weight, germination

percentage and time) of chia seed were tried to be determined in the study. In

addition, film seeding of chia seeds has been applied to increase seed quality and

the effects on seed structure were examined. According to the results obtained; chia

seeds were found to have medium size and oval shape, and the weight of 1000
