Physiological potential and initial development of soybean plants as a function of seed treatment
(Pesquisa Agropecuaria Tropical, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
Seed treatment is a process that helps to control insects and soil-borne pathogens, besides allowing a given crop to reach its maximum production potential and protect its seedlings. This study aimed to evaluate the ...
Biospeckle activity in coffee seeds is associated non-destructively with seedling quality
(Annals Of Applied Biology, 2017-03-01) [Artigo]
Seeds age during storage, resulting in a decline in germination and seedling quality. Seed quality tests are important to monitor this decline. However, such tests are usually destructive and require large seed numbers and ...
Desiccation tolerance of Tapirira obtusa seeds collected from different environments
(Revista Brasileira de Sementes, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a sensibilidade à dessecação de sementes de Tapirira obtusa (Benth.) J. D. Mitchell provenientes de três ambientes e submetidas a duas velocidades de secagem. As sementes foram coletadas ...
Seedling survival of Handroanthus impetiginosus (Mart ex DC) Mattos in a semi-arid environment through modified germination speed and post-germination desiccation tolerance
(Brazilian Journal Of Biology, 2015-11-01) [Artigo]
Uniform rapid seed germination generally forms a great risk for the plant population if subsequent intermittent precipitation causes desiccation and seedling death. Handroanthus impetiginosus can be found commonly in a ...
