Effect of depth of sowing and light intensity on germination of 'baru' seeds (Dipteryx alata Vog.)

Effect of depth of sowing and light intensity on germination of 'baru' seeds (Dipteryx alata Vog.)

Pesquisa Agropecuaria Brasileira 29(4): 653-659

The effects of 5 sowing depths (0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 cm, in washed sand) and 2 light intensities (100% sunlight in an open field nursery or 50% sunlight in a woven-nylon-covered lathhouse) on germination of D. alata seeds were studied. Germination rate averaged 72.8 and 52.5% and germination speed averaged 5.1 and 4.9 weeks at 100 and 50% light, respectively.
