## Germination Count Range Test for Seed Sample Heterogeneity

### Description

A test based on the exact probability distribution of the germination count range, i.e, the difference between germination count of seed samples.

### Usage

```
germinationcount.test(r, nsamples, n, N, K)
```

### Arguments

`r` |
an integer representing the germination count difference between seed samples. |

`nsamples` |
an integer representing the number of seed samples. |

`n` |
an integer representing the number of seeds per sample. |

`N` |
an integer representing the size (number of seeds) of the seed lot. |

`K` |
an integer representing the number of germinating seeds in the seed lot. |

### Value

A list of

`R.value` |
integer; the input R-value ( |

`p.value` |
numeric; the exact p-value. |

`germination.rate` |
numeric; the germination rate of the seed lot, calculated as the ration of |
