Abstract The amount of water taken up by germinating barley seeds was determined 2–10 h after sowing. The increase in fresh weight was the same in seeds sown on plates containing 9 to 25 ml of water or immersed in tanks of aerated water; but it was significantly lower in seeds sown on 6 ml. Barley grains transferred from 6 to 25 ml of water increase their rate of uptake and within 2 h they have taken up a similar amount of water as seeds sown on 25 ml. Water uptake is also influenced by seed… Expand
COLEORHIZA, ROOT AND COLEOPTILE EMERGENCE AND GROWTH: EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT WATER VOLUMES
TLDR
The initial stimulation of germination by 20 ml of water, succeeded by an inhibition of root and coleoptile growth, suggests that the various organs of a barley embryo respond differentially to different volumes of ambient water. Expand
Reserve Mobilization, Total Sugars and Proteins in Germinating Seeds of Durum Wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) under Water Deficit after Short Period of Imbibition
Imbibition during the first few hours is crucial for the success of seed germination process. The effect of water deficit after 2 and 8 hours (h) of imbibition of seeds of durum wheat was studied inExpand
Effects of steeping and anaerobic treatment on GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) content in germinated waxy hull-less barley
TLDR
The findings indicate that the glutamate decarboxylase (GAD), which is the rate-limiting enzyme for GABA synthesis, is more activated by extending germination at controlled pH (6.0), and the anoxia storage with nitrogen after the germination increases the GABA content. Expand
EFFECTS ON THE GERMINATION AND SEEDLING GR OWTH OF BARLEY
TLDR
There was a range of inhibitory and stimulatory effects of micro-organisms on germination and on the weight and lengths of the roots and coleoptile and of the total root system. Expand
MICROBIAL EFFECTS ON THE GERMINATION AND SEEDLING GROWTH OF BARLEY
TLDR
There was a range of inhibitory and stimulatory effects of micro-organisms on germination and on the weight and lengths of the roots and coleoptile and of the total root system. Expand
β-GLUCANS CONTENT AS A PERSPECTIVE TRAIT IN THE BARLEY BREEDING FOR FOODSTUFF USE (review)
On the ground of data of foreign literature the authors consider the target utilization of barley in connection with -glucans in grain. The authors analyzed the influence of a genotype, climaticExpand

Little or no attention has so far been paid to using sweet sorghum malt for commercial beer brewing. Thus, three sweet sorghum varieties (SSV) and four sorghum varieties (SV) were analyzed forExpand

TLDR
The effects of varying the amount of water available to the corns during germination tests have been examined and it has been found that this factor profoundly influences the final percentage germination. Expand
EXPERIMENTS ON THE MECHANISM OF INDUCED DORMANCY IN WILD OATS, AVENA FATUA L.
TLDR
An inhibitor which leaches from the hulls of wild oats completely stops growth of excised embryos but dormancy can be induced in the absence of hulls, and dormant caryopses absorb 2,3,6-triphenyl-tetrazolium chloride but are unable to reduce this dye. Expand

TLDR
Three types of coleoptiles of uniform height at any time do not have identical growth-rates; it is suggested they are in different physiological states. Expand
