Differences in the nature of thermo dormancy and far red dormancy in lettuce lactuca sativa cultivar noran seeds

, : Differences in the nature of thermo dormancy and far red dormancy in lettuce lactuca sativa cultivar noran seeds. Physiologia Plantarum 53(4): 553-557

Lettuce seeds cv. Noran germinate at C in light as well as in darkness. Dormancy can be induced either by a long exposure (24 h) to far-red radiation or by an exposure of 48-72 h to a temperature of C. The difference in response of these 2 types of dormant seeds to conditions inducing germination indicate that in both types Pfr [phytochrome-far red form] is inactivated, but that a dark process required for immediate action of Pfr does not proceed at C as it does during far-red radiation.

Heydecker, W.; Joshua, A., 1977: Alleviation of the thermo dormancy of lettuce lactuca sativa seeds. Imbibed lettuce seeds become thermodormant even at moderately high temperatures (above C), and this tendency is intensified by the absence of light. Moreover, such seeds can then no longer germinate at certain lower temperatures which w...
