Effect of dressing of hot water-steeped and unsteeped seeds on longevity and seedling emergence in Corchorus olitorious L.

The study was conducted at the laboratory of the Department of Crop Production, Federal University of Technology Minna. Seeds of cultivars “Amugbadu” and “Oniyaya” of Corchorus olitorius were steeped in hot water at 97°C for five seconds (for the purpose of breaking dormancy) and subsequently air dried to about 10% moisture content (wet weight basis). They were then treated with...

Effect of organic seed pelleting on seed storability and quality seedling production in biofuel tree species

Jatropha curcas and Pongamia pinnata are the promising biofuel species worldwide that contained 35 to 45% seed oil, respectively. Due to the reason of high oil content of these seeds are liable to getting easily deteriorated by fungal and insects during storage and that could hold the limitation of spreading through afforestation. To resolve this problem, the present study was carried out with J....
