AbstractResearches different methods of breaking dormancy in two Sida species, S. acuta and S. rhombifolia. Alternate temperature treatments resulted in 62% germination for S. rhombifolia. H2SO4, pyridine, ethyl alcohol, ethyl acetate and diethyl-ether also increased the percentage of germination or imbibition in S. rhombifolia.
