The effect of aqueous sodium cyanide has been studied on germination ofC. ternatea andR. minima seeds. The suitable concentration of this chemical accelerates imbibition, germination, and promotes the early growth of the seedlings. The best result is obtained by soaking the seeds for 24 hours in a solution of 100 ppm of sodium cyanide. As concentrations are increased the inhibitory effect becames more and more pronounced leading to the eventual suppression of normal germination and growth of…

Salinity tolerance in Senna macranthera (DC. ex Collad.) H. S. Irwin & Barneby seeds with sodium nitroprusside (SNP) promoted by cyanide

Abstract: Studies show the positive effect of the nitric oxide donor in the seed germination process. However, there are no precise reports about which compound present in sodium nitroprusside would

Effect of cyanide by sodium nitroprusside (SNP) application on germination, antioxidative system and lipid peroxidation of Senna macranthera seeds under saline stress

TLDR
The sodium nitroprusside (SNP) improves the germination of Senna macranthera seeds under salt stress conditions, through release of cyanide, reducing lipid peroxidation and increasing the activity of the antioxidant enzymes.

In his Friday evening discourse at the Royal Institution on November 3, Sir Arthur Hill discussed the many ingenious devices for the protection of the seed and equally ingenious arrangements for the escape of the embryo on germination, which are found in plants.
