The stimulation of seed germination by smoke and aqueous smoke extractshas received much attention in recent years. However, the mode of action andtheidentity of the active compound(s) in smoke which promote seed germinationremain unknown. Consequently, experiments were conducted to gain furtherinsightinto the nature of smoke-stimulated seed germination, using Grand Rapidslettuceseeds. Imbibition of seeds prior to incubation with diluted smoke extract,resulted in reduced levels of germination… CONTINUE READING
