Month: Aug
Year: 1994

Journal: Hortscience

Article Topic(s): Germination, Seed storage
Research Setting(s): Laboratory

Species Referenced: Rudbeckia fulgida (Orange coneflower),

Abstract

Summarizes results of priming Rudbeckia fulgida seeds with potassium nitrate (KNO3). Osmotic priming (with KNO3) increased germination percentage while priming with polyethylene glycol decreased germination. Generally, germination was highest at 28.8 to 32.2C.
