Seed conditioning of red oak: a recalcitrant North American seed



Seed conditioning of red oak: a recalcitrant North American seed



Scientia Agricola 55(SPECIAL): 67-73



A 10-day aerated water soak was developed as a seed conditioning treatment for red oak (Quercus rubra). Conditioned seeds had higher final germination percentages than control seeds, and germination was more rapid and uniform. It was possible to maintain conditioned seeds at 7 degrees C for 30 days without significant loss of seed quality. During conditioning, pericarps split in response to increased seed hydration.
