The effect of boric acid treatment of sunflower (Helianthus annuus) achenes on seed germination



The effect of boric acid treatment of sunflower (Helianthus annuus) achenes on seed germination



Informations Techniques, CETIOM (104): 11-21



Seeds of 3 lots of sunflower Mirasol were divided into 3 size classes: those of 100-seed wt with 5 mg of the mean for the line (W2), and those heavier (W3) or lighter (W1) than W2. Seeds were soaked in solutions containing 1.5 mg boric acid/litre for 14 h after rinsing in distilled water for 3 h. Boric acid treatment increased percentage germination in all size classes of all seed lots but the effect was greatest in W1.
