Loss of dehydration tolerance coincides with a shift from heterotrophy to autotrophy during post-germination growth of spring wheat seedlings. This critical stage falls on the fifth day following imbibition. Till the sixth day of experiment light had no effect on dry weight of the seedlings but the survival of six day old seedlings was reduced by half upon dehydration. Germinating seeds in the presence of 5 mM glucose, fructose, mannose or sucrose did not promote seedling growth but either… CONTINUE READING
