This study was carried out in the biotechnology laboratory of Agricultural Faculty of Ondokuz May’ s University. The objective of this study was to establish the effects of chilling period and chilling temperature on germination in linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.). Seeds were subjected to six different heat temperatures (0, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 o C) for 24, 48, 72, 96, and 120 hours. Germination tests were carried out in a clammed chamber at 25 o C with 70% humidity, 8 hours dark and 16 hours…

Germination and vigor of linseed seeds under different conditions of light, temperature and water stress
It was found that the highest percentages of germination and vigor occurred at a constant temperature of 20 °C, both in the presence and absence of light, and the reduction of the osmotic potential of the substrate promoted a significant decrease in the germinationand vigor of linseed seeds.
Agro-morphological characterization of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) accessions at north-western part of Bangladesh
An agro-morphological characterization based on 13 traits of 26 flax accessions was carried out during the Rabi season 2017-2018 at the Agricultural Research Station, Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute, Rangpur, finding significant variation in all growth and yield attributing descriptors was observed.
Characterization of Medicago populations under cold acclimation by morphological traits and microsatellite (SSR) markers
Root to shoot ratios and differentiation between species by fisher pair indicates that all species were different from each other, and there were differences between populations of the same species of cold acclimation, which will encourage for a study of association between cold Acclimation and molecular polymorphism.
The eff ect of diff erent seeding densities of linseed ( Linum usitatissimum L . ) on fl ax fl ea beetles ( Coleoptera : Chrysomelidae )
Linseed, one of the oldest cultivated crops, is again gaining in importance, mainly due to its nutritional benefi ts and biomedical applications. Th erefore, it is expected that herbivores will also


Influence of heat on seed germination of seven Mediterranean Leguminosae species
The response of species to heat shock had no clear relationship with life trait or with the specific post-fire regeneration strategy (obligate seeder or facultative resprouter), and those species coexisting in the same habitats had different heat optimal requirements for seed germination.
Effects of soaking duration on germination and seedling growth of tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum Mill)
The study has demonstrated the advantages of soaking seeds in water for about 24 h prior to sowing them in the field and indicated significant enhancement of germination by all soaking durations except for Xina variety where 36 h treatment showed no significant difference from the control.
Effect of low temperature and seeding depth on the germination and emergence of seven flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) cultivars
Cool, moist soils combined with deep seeding can have a dramatic negative effect on percent emergence and the time to emergence of flax seedlings. The effects of temperature (over a range of 5–15 °C)
Germination and Early Seedling Development under Low Temperature in Canola
It is determined that low temperature has a deleterious effect on the germination of canola and this may be reflected in a loss or a delay of coordination in the mobilization of reserves.
Temperature effects on seed germination and expression of seed dormancy in wheat
Which temperature gives the greatest difference in seed germination and expression of seed dormancy in 10 spring wheat genotypes was determined to be weighted germination index (WGI), which showed highly significant genotype effects on germination.
Effect of Temperature Regimes on Germination of Dimorphic Seeds of Atriplex prostrata
A significant three-way interaction of seed size, temperature and month for both percent germination and the rate of germination was found and large seeds had greater germination at all temperatures as compared to small seeds.
Relationship of germination and vigor tests to field emergence of snap beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Four laboratory tests were evaluated for their ability to predict the potential field emergence of snap beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). Standard germination, accelerated aging, cold soil test and
The effect of temperature, seed colour and linolenic acid concentration on germination and seed vigour in flax
In Canada, the edible-oil type of flax (Linum usitatissimum) known as solin must have a linolenic acid concentration of less than 5% and a yellow seed colour and there was no difference in germination frequency between brown and yellow seed.
Temperature requirements for seed germination in four annual clovers grown under two irrigation treatments.
Results indicated that to reduce the risk of pour stand establishment in cold soils, particular attention should be used to program the time of autumn sowing for these species.
Temperature requirements for seed germination in species of the genus Allium L.
The purpose of this study was to develop routine germination tests for the genebank work with wild alliums and to study the seed germination behaviour and dormancy of certain wild Allium species.
