Effects of cold temperatures on seed germination in four Arachis hypogaea L. cultivars

Effects of cold temperatures on seed germination in four Arachis hypogaea L. cultivars

Oleagineux 42(5): 197-205

Results obtained from laboratory experiments and data taken from the literature indicated that seed of groundnut 55.437, 73.33, 28.206 and RMP12 does not withstand the combination of cold above-zero temp. and high humidity: the LD50 was about 6 h of imbibition and surviving seedlings frequently showed structural modifications, especially at the subterminal zone of the primary root. This abnormality resulted from the collapse of the radicle cortical tissue following cell death.
