The moisture relations of seed longevity in Astronium urundeuva (Fr. All.) Engl



The moisture relations of seed longevity in Astronium urundeuva (Fr. All.) Engl



Seed Science and Technology 26(2): 289-298



The moisture relations of seed longevity in two populations of Astronium urundeuva (aroeira) from the Pernambuco region of Brazil were studied. The classification of aroeira seeds as orthodox and their potential for long-term storage at 15% relative humidity (rh) and -20 degrees C were confirmed. A single regression adequately described the negative logarithmic relation between seed moisture content and longevity for the two populations.
