Effect of fluoride on germination and starch mobilization of horse gram seeds

, : Effect of fluoride on germination and starch mobilization of horse gram seeds. Indian Journal of Plant Physiology 36(2): 131-133

Fluoride inhibited the germination of horse gram seeds. Treatment of 100 ppm fluoride lowered the rate of increase in reducing sugars and rate of decrease in starch and total soluble carbohydrates in the cotyledons.
