Oxygen regulates imbibition of muskmelon seeds


Seed Science and Technology 23(3): 843-850
Oxygen regulates imbibition of muskmelon seeds
Muskmelon seeds were immersed in PEG 8000 solution at different oxygen concentrations and water potentials for 10 days with or without cyanide. Under all combinations of water potential and oxygen, seeds took up water rapidly during the first day, followed by a lag phase. Radicle protrusion of whole seeds at 0 MPa and 100% oxygen took place at 28 h. By this time, the moisture content was approximately 90% (DW basis).
