Sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L. CV. Keystone Resistant Giant #3) seeds were imbibed (primed) in salt solutions to determine a) what concentrations would inhibit radicle emergence and b) the influence this delay in radicle emergence would have on subsequent germination. Seeds were primed for 17 days at 23C in petri dishes with KNO3, KCl, NaCl, K2SO4, Na 2SO4, 1 NaCl: 1 CaCl 2 (mol/mol), Ca(NO3)2, CaCl 2, Na2HPO4, and K2HPO4 in 10, 25, 50, 100, 200, or 300 mM of the salts. Germination was not…

Effect of seed priming with NaCl on salinity tolerance of hot pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) at seedling stage
TLDR
It was concluded that seed priming with NaCl has been found to be better treatment as compared to non-primed seeds in case of hot pepper for improving the seedling vigour and seedling establishment under salt-stressed conditions.
Inducing salt tolerance in wheat by seed vigor enhancement techniques
The study was conducted to determine whether salt tolerance could be induced in wheat at emergence stage by seed priming. Different seed priming techniques used were, soaking of seeds for 24h in
Seed priming and shading on emergency and initial growth of Bixa orellana L. seedlings.
Two experiments were carried out to evaluate the effect of period and temperature of conditioning in the germination of seeds and seedlings growth, and the effect of shading on the seedlings initial
1 Improving dormancy and germination of Piquín chili 2 pepper ( C apsicum annuum var . glabriusculum ) by 3 priming techniques 4
The effects of different priming techniques were evaluated to improve the dormancy and 14 germination of wild seeds of “Piquín” chili pepper. Three experiments were designed for pre15 sowing
1 Relieving dormancy and improving germination of 2 Piquín chili pepper ( C apsicum annuum var . 3 glabriusculum ) by priming techniques 4
The effects of different priming techniques were evaluated to improve the dormancy and 15 germination of wild seeds of “Piquín” chili pepper. Three experiments were designed for pre16 sowing
Physiological and enzymatic activity of pepper seeds (Capsicum annuum) during priming
TLDR
Seed respiratory rates indicated that priming extends the lag phase of germination following imbibition, and there were no significant differences between the protein concentrations or enzyme activities of the two priming treatments.
Effects of Immersing Treatment Period of CMV Resistant GM and non GM Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) on Seed Germination
TLDR
It was found that the pepper seeds were geminated in the water in June (storage period: 7 months) over 20°C of water temperature, which indicated that it is important to carefully manage the peppers produced from GM farms to prevent ecological disturbance from storms, heavy rains, and other factors.
Relieving dormancy and improving germination of Piquín chili pepper (Capsicum annuum var. glabriusculum) by priming techniques
TLDR
KNO3 and secondly GA3 treatments may improve rapid and uniform germination and seedling emergence, and develop guidelines for commercial establishment of Piquín pepper crops.
ACONDICIONAMIENTO OSMÓTICO DE SEMILLA DE PAPA (Solanum tuberosum L.) CON SOLUCIONES SALINAS
TLDR
Recently conditioned seed had better performance than stored seed; viability and germination of seed conditioned in Na2HPO4 or KH2PO4 solutions improved andGermination improved in solutions of Na2 HPO4 and KH2 PO4 when compared to the control, although treatment with only water and 60 h of imbibition promoted germination more efficiently.
Seed germination of wild chili peppers in response to pre-germination treatments
TLDR
The low germination of wild chili pepper seeds, together with the impermeability of their testas, is one of the factors that limit their propagation and will lead to their sustainable use in the State of Tabasco.

PEPPER SEED TREATMENT FOR LOW-TEMPERATURE GERMINATION
Low-temperature germination and emergence of pepper (Capsicum annum L.) seed was accelerated by imbibition in salt (KNO3 + K3PO4∙H2O) and PEG solutions at 20 °C. Salt-treated seed had a faster rate
Salt priming of muskmelon seeds for low-temperature germination
TLDR
Nitrate-containing salts were more efficient than nitrate-free salts in promoting low-temperature germination and priming in 2–3% solutions of KH 2 PO 4 + KNO 3 for 1–5 days significantly increased the germination rate, synchronization and percentage.
Fast germination of parsley seeds
TLDR
The pre-treatment could appreciably improve the emergence percentage of seeds sown in wet soil and the weight of plants from certain seed treatments was significantly greater after 14 weeks' growth than that from untreated seeds.
Interactions between seed priming treatments and nine seed lots of carrot, celery and onion. I. Laboratory germination
TLDR
Priming reduced the mean germination times of all seed lots of carrot, celery and onion by 3–4 days, and between priming and seed lots within cultivars for each species, and for primed and dried-back seed, the spread was larger than that of primed seed in certain cultivars, but was always smaller than those of untreated seeds.
SEED ACTIVATION AND SEED GERMINATION UNDER MOISTURE STRESS
TLDR
The results have a direct bearing both on the seed ‘priming’ treatment used to accelerate seed germination and on the tolerance to drought of seeds in the field.
Pepper seed respiration, germination, and seedling development following seed priming
TLDR
Seeds from each replication were placed on moist filter paper in Petri dishes for germination tests, in rolled paper towels for radicle and hypocotyl development tests, or in 70-ml incubation jars for 24-hr respiration studies.
A comparison of different chemicals for osmotic treatment of vegetable seed
TLDR
It is concluded that PEG treatment gives the most consistently beneficial effects for the range of species tested, and glycerol treatments tended to reduce percentage germination and emergence, most markedly in leek and one cultivar of celery.
High temperature and germination in spinach. II. Effects of osmotic priming
TLDR
Priming seeds of spinach by extended, partial imbibition in osmotic solutions of polyethylene glycol “6000” (PEG) markedly improved subsequent germination at 30°C, and could be dried back and stored for at least 30 days at 5°C without losing their improved capacity for germinationat high temperature.
Osmotic priming of seeds of crop species with polyethylene glycol as a means of enhancing early and synchronous germination at cool temperatures
Polyethylene glycol (PEG) solutions can be used to promote early and synchronous germination of seeds at cool temperatures. The determination of optimum priming levels is an essential prelude to
Accelerated Germination by Osmotic Seed Treatment
TLDR
The time from sowing to seedling emergence and the time between the emergence of the first and the last seedling are shortened and tomato seeds thus treated for 6 d exhibit a much higher level of RNA production during germination than untreated seeds8.
