SEED PRIMING WITH MICRONUTRIENTS
2. Seed priming with micronutrients. In seed priming, seeds are partially hydrated to allow metabolic events to occur without actual germination, and then re-dried (near to their original weight) to permit routine handling (Bradford 1986). Such seeds germinate faster than non-primed seeds (Farooq et al., 2006, 2009).

and yield under field conditions. Therefore, the methods for improving their vigor such as the priming especially with micronutrients required for the germination is an important factor in enhancing their yield. The objective of the present study was to examine the effect of seed priming with different concentrations (0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and[PDF]
A COMPARISON OF THE EFFECTS OF MICRONUTRIENT SEED
Micronutrient seed priming experiments were done in the laboratory to determine optimal priming solution concentrations before testing the procedure in the ﬁeld. The laboratory seed priming germination tests were done with three legumes: chickpea, lentil and cowpea (Vigna unguiculata v. Prakash), using solutions at three concentrationsCited by: 97Publish Year: 2005Author: S. E. Johnson, J. G. Lauren, R. M. Welch, J. M. Duxbury
