Studies on accelerated aging seed vigor test for foxtail millet

Studies on accelerated aging seed vigor test for foxtail millet

Scientia Agricultura Sinica 32(3): 66-71

The method of seed vigour testing by accelerated aging (AA) was studied with 14 cultivars of foxtail millet (Setaria italica). The results showed that the AA test was a good way to measure vigour differences of foxtail millet seeds. The suitable temperature of AA treatment for foxtail millet was 41 degrees C and the time was 48 h.
