Effect of umbel order and seed size on seed quality in carrot (Daucus carota L.)

Effect of umbel order and seed size on seed quality in carrot (Daucus carota L.)

Seed Research 32(2): 154-159

Carrot (cv. HC-1) seeds taken from primary, secondary and tertiary umbel orders were subjected to various quality tests. Seeds harvested from primary and secondary umbels showed the highest test weight, rapid germination, higher viability, less leakage of leachates, and greater germination after accelerated aging. Seeds of each umbel were further graded into large, medium and small seeds after passing them through sieves with holes 1.0 nd 0.8 mm in size.
