Germination, emergence and growth of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) in response to osmotic seed priming



Germination, emergence and growth of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) in response to osmotic seed priming



Seed Science and Technology 31(1): 199-206



The effect of seed priming on germination, field emergence, growth and flowering of three parent lines of sunflower was investigated in Zambia. Priming significantly (P<0.05) reduced the time to 50% germination (TG50) and the time to 50% field emergence (E50). It also significantly (P<0.05) improved both the synchrony of germination (Gs) and the final emergence (Ef).
