SUMMARY Carrot and leek seed was osmotically primed in polyethylene glycol solution (273 g/kg water and 342 g/kg water respectively) for 10, 14 or 17 days before accelerated ageing for 0, 24, 48, 72 or 96 h. Priming reduced the germination time compared with non-primed seed. Accelerated ageing increased germination and emergence times and decreased percentage germination and emergence to a greater extent for the primed seeds than for non-primed seeds in both species. Primed and dried… CONTINUE READING
