Hot water treatment of crucifer seed

Hot water treatment of crucifer seed

Malaysian Agricultural Journal 52(3): 228-239

Brassica chinensis and B. rapa seeds were treated in hot water at C for 25 min, air dried and dusted with fungicide at 3 g fungicide/100 g seed. Three-gram lots of seed containing .apprx. 150 seeds/lot were sealed in polythene bags and stored under 3 conditions, deep freeze ( C), incubator ( C) and room temperature ( C). The hot water treatment apparently did not have any deleterious effect on seed germination and viability; instead it resulted in higher percentage germination over a longer period of time as compared to the control. Treated seed of the varieties tested can be stored at C and C for at least a year.
