Title:
SEED DORMANCY AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO NURSERY PRACTICES

Author:
Dale E. Kester

pp: 256-266

Abstract:
A seed may fail to germinate for three basic reasons First, it may be non-viable and thus incapable of development. Secondly, it may be subjected to environmental conditions which are unsuitable for germination. Thirdly, the seed may be affected by specific internal conditions — either in the seed coverings or in the embryo itself — which prevent germination from taking place until such time as these conditions are removed. The latter cause of non-germination will be the subject of this paper.
