Cold storage of seeds of Araucaria angustifolia (Bert.) O. Kuntze: preservation of germination ability



Cold storage of seeds of Araucaria angustifolia (Bert.) O. Kuntze: preservation of germination ability



RIA, Revista de Investigaciones Agropecuarias 33(2): 67-83



This work aims to extend the time of storage of Araucaria angustifolia seeds, without losing germination ability. This fact could programme the moment of sowing, both in tree nursery or at field, overcoming the cyclic behaviour and the recalcitrant characteristic of this species. Seeds from the Department Manuel Belgrano, (Misiones, Argentina) were used. They were packaged in flexible plastic bags (ethyl vinyl acetate, EVA and polyethylene, PE) and they were kept at -3, 0, 4 and 10 C.
