Studies on the sensitivity of monogerm sugar beet germination to water

Studies on the sensitivity of monogerm sugar beet germination to water

Annals of Applied Biology 77(1): 51-60

Rubbed and graded fruits of sugar beet Amono were germinated on 3 layers of filter paper in 9-cm Petri dishes with 3 (optimum) or 8 ml water. Germination percentages with optimum water were 77% after 10 days, 87% after 23 days, and with excess water 24.5 and 28.5%, respectively. Removing the fruit cap increased the 10-day germination from 24.5 to 58.0%. Drying the ungerminated seeds showed that excess water was inhibitory but not lethal.
