Abstract

WE have not found in the literature any report of the presence of inhibitors in the testas of annual weed seeds1. Charlock (Sinapis arvensis L.) is an annual weed that exhibits marked seed dormancy and in the experiments reported here we have investigated the possible presence of inhibitors in the seed coats of this species.
