The effect of priming on seedling emergence of differentially matured watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum and Nakai) seeds



The effect of priming on seedling emergence of differentially matured watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum and Nakai) seeds



Scientia Horticulturae 102(4): 467-473



The influence of salt priming (KNO<sub>3</sub>, 3%, 6 day, 20 degrees C) on glasshouse seedling emergence, emergence rate, seedling weight and hypocotyl length of watermelon seeds grown in two production sites and harvested 20, 30 and 40 days after anthesis (DAA) was investigated. The maximum benefit of priming was observed in seeds of 20 DAA for all criteria.
