Effect of heat and acid scarification on germination of seed of Bahia grass, paspalum notatum, Flugge



Effect of heat and acid scarification on germination of seed of Bahia grass, paspalum notatum, Flugge



Agronomy Journal 41(11): 531-533



1. Common and Pensacola Bahia grass seed germinate poorly when seeded without scarification with acid or heat treatment. 2. The acid-scarification method, while effective, is rather difficult for the farmer to use. 3. Data are presented to show that for Pensacola Bahia grass, heat treatments of 50 to 60 degrees C (148 to 165 degrees F) for 2 to 4 days will produce equal or higher germinations than will 60 minutes of acid-scarification. 4. Heat treatment is not so effective on common Bahia grass as is acid-scarification. 5. Heat treatments could easily be accomplished by the farmer.
