Study of Pre-treatments on Seed Germination of Zygophyllum atriplicoides. E.E.R. . 2011; 1 (2) :69-83
Abstract:   (5950 Views)

Zygophyllum atriplicoides is one of the most important rangeland species of Hormozgan Province. With regards to its importance of it in domesticated animal nourishment, soil protection and raising honeybees this study on seed germination of Zygophyllum atriplicoides was carried out. In this investigation, the effects of seven pre-treatments with hot water sulphuric acid for 5, 10 and 15 minutes 0.2% KNO3, cold and controlled on seed germination of Zygophyllum atriplicoides were tested. Seeds were grown in petri dishes for 14 days. This randomized experiment was replicated three times.According to the results, applying 0.2% KNO3 as pre-treatment on seeds showed higher values of seed germination percent, germination rate, plumage growth and vigor index. Warm water had higher values of radicle growth.
