The effect of priming treatments on the performance of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai) seeds under temperature and osmotic stress



The effect of priming treatments on the performance of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai) seeds under temperature and osmotic stress



Seed Science and Technology 27(3): 871-875



Watermelon seeds were subjected to osmoconditioning (2% KNO3, 20 degrees C, 6 days) or hydropriming (30 degrees C, 18 h) and incubated at 15, 25 and 38 degrees C. Mean time to germination was decreased and germination increased by both priming treatments at 15 degrees C with osmoconditioning being superior to hydropriming. However, neither osmoconditioning nor hydropriming treatment affected germination significantly at 25 and 38 degrees C.
