French term or phrase: Stade limite d\'avortement
It is clear what this refers to – the point beyond which a seed is viable and cannot "fail". There must be a term for this in English. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thank you.


Stade limite d’avortement (SLA)
Le SLA est défini par la taille de la graine.
Au- delà de 8,5 mm de long, la graine de pois - alors de forme ovale
- ne peut plus avorter. L’épaisseur de gousse est de 8-9 mm et la
teneur en eau des graines atteint 85%.
Le SLA des graines du 1er étage marque le début du remplissage des
graines (DRG) à l’échelle de la plante.
