Influence of seed maturity on the vigor and chemical composition of hybrid shrunken-2 sweet corn seed


, : Influence of seed maturity on the vigor and chemical composition of hybrid shrunken-2 sweet corn seed. Dissertation Abstracts International B, Sciences and Engineering 52(4): 1806B

Changes in chemical composition were examined in shrunken-2 sweetcorn seeds harvested at different moisture contents to determine at which maturity level seeds possess maximum vigour. Seed of Florida Staysweet (FS) harvested with 0.23-0.57 g water/g FW in 1987 possessed the highest seedling vigour based on 5 different tests of performance.
