Drought response of groundnuts. 1. Physiology of the groundnut seed germination



Drought response of groundnuts. 1. Physiology of the groundnut seed germination



Advances in Plant Sciences 2(1): 139-142



Changes in physiological processes of groundnut seeds during germination at different imbibition periods and germination rate at different seed moisture contents were studied. Seeds remained in the imbibition phase for up to 25 h followed by a lag phase of 25-55 h and thereafter entered into the germination or growth phase. Diffusivity of seeds increased up to 30 h of imbibition, then remained constant up to 55 h and thereafter again increased up to 75 h.
