Effect of seed size on seed germination and seed vigour in sorghum



Effect of seed size on seed germination and seed vigour in sorghum



Annals of Plant Physiology 8(1): 59-62



Investigations were carried out to assess the effect of seed size on germination and seed vigour in several sorghum genotypes. Seed germination percentage was higher (85.85%) in large seed (B) compared with medium (C) or smaller (D) seeds (72.32 and 61.67%, respectively). Among all genotypes SB 1085 exhibited the highest (93.98%) seed germination percentage in all seed grades.
