Effects of three pre-treatment techniques on dormancy and germination of seeds of Afzelia africana

The study assessed the effects of three pre-treatment techniques on dormancy and germination of seeds of Afzelia africana (Sm. ex Pers), an endangered tree species in Savanna ecozone of Nigeria. The three pre-treatment techniques are: soaking in cold water for 1, 12 and 24 h, soaking in hot water (100◦C) for 1, 12 and 24 h and soaking in 10, 50 and 98% concentrated sulphuric acid (H2SO4) for 5, 10 and 30 min....

Performance of soybean plants originated from seeds of high and low vigor submitted to water deficit

This study had the objective of evaluating the effect of water deficit on the growth of soybean plants from seeds with high and low vigor. It was conducted at the Faculdade de Agronomia "Eliseu Maciel” (FAEM-UFPel) using the cultivar M-SOY 8008 RR. The experimental design was a completely randomized in factorial AXB (Factor A: Variables 2, 3, 4 and 5 water deficits; Factor B: two levels of seed vigor, high...
