Abstract

Fresh seeds of tomato cultivars Narc-2012 and Narc-2013 were subjected to osmopriming treatments with an objective to improve germination and seedling vigor by dormancy breakdown. For osmopriming seeds were soaked in aerated solution of 10, 50 and 100 ppm kinetin for 24 hours at 25°C. Continue reading

Lycopersicon esculentum,By: Mohsen Poursoltan Hojagan

Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the seed priming effects on the quality of tomato seeds under salinity and non-salinity conditions. The factorial design was carried out in the form of completely randomized design (CRD) with four replications. The treatments included priming (Control, tryptophan, proline and arginine with five mM concentration) and levels of salinity (0, 30, 60mM NaCl). Continue reading
