Behaviour of hybrid corn seeds during storage under different conditions of air temperature and relative humidity

, : Behaviour of hybrid corn seeds during storage under different conditions of air temperature and relative humidity. Scientia Agricola 51(1): 153-157

To evaluate the performance of hybrid maize seeds during storage under different temperature and relative humidity conditions, Pioneer 3072 and 3210 hybrid seeds were stored under 3 different sets of conditions for 6 months and tested for germinability, ageing, electrical conductivity, seedling emergence, etc.

The temperature at which seeds of witchwood (Striga asiatica), an obligate parasite, were stored markedly influenced the length of time that the seeds remained dormant. Dormancy was broken completely by storing seeds collected in Aug., 1960, at 88...
