Effects of Heat and Loss of Moisture on the Dormancy of Barley

Article metrics

Abstract

IN a paper on the effects of desiccation on delayed germination in barley it is suggested that ripening and germination are directly related to the moisture-content of the grain1. The observation is made that complete germination occurred when the moisture content naturally fell to 12.7 per cent or when artificial drying was used.
