Abstract Bitter vetch is an important legume crop cultivated for forage and seed yield in the Mediterranean, West Asia, and North Africa regions. Delaying seed harvest of bitter vetch may increase seed losses due to pod shattering; however, early harvest may influence seed dormancy and the ability of seed to germinate. Field experiments were conducted at two locations in Jordan to study the effect of maturity stage on germination and dormancy of fresh (before drying), air‐dried, and dry… CONTINUE READING
