Induction of germination of impermeable cottonseed by electrical treatment

, : Induction of germination of impermeable cottonseed by electrical treatment. Crop Science 13(2): 159-161

Germination of impermeable cotton seed was increased from <10% without treatment to 60-90% after exposure in an evacuated glass tube for 3 min to a glow discharge from a high voltage source giving 60-180 mA at 60 Hz or 15 or 17.5 kHz. Significant but smaller increases were obtained with electric fields at 40 MHz and 1.3-3.1 kV/cm intensity.

The final biosynthesis steps are the beta-oxidation of...

The rhizomes of all species in the fern genus Lecanopteris Reinw. contain galleries (hollow chambers) that serve as domatia (homes) for ants. Some aspects of the biology of these species have been elucidated clearly, e.g., adaptations linked to th...
