Variation in seed dormancy among and within species of Sesbania



Variation in seed dormancy among and within species of Sesbania



Scientia Agricola 57(2): 299-304



Variation in seed dormancy was analysed in 13 families each of S. rostrata, S. exasperata, S. tetraptera, S. sesban and S. virgata. High variability for seed dormancy was observed among species (P<0.01) and among families (P<0.01). S. virgata and S. tetraptera presented the highest dormancy, with average germination of 13.5 and 13.9%, respectively, while S. rostrata and S. sesban showed the lowest dormancy, with average germination of 68.3 and 60.5%.
