Effect of Raffinose Family Oligosaccharides on Seed Germination of Wild and Mutant Types of Chickpea (cicer Arietinum)


The raffinose family oligosaccharides (RFOs) are a group of soluble galactosyl derivatives which include raffinose and stachyose thought to play a number of roles in plant development. They are providing a source of rapidly metabolizable carbohydrate during germination. In contrast to their potential for promoting germination, RFOs represent anti… (More)
