Artificial Drying and Storage of Smooth Bromegrass Seed1

  1. Don F. Grabe2

Synopsis

Synopsis

Freshly harvested bromegrass seed containing up to 28% moisture was successfully dried with a field drier in less than 6 hours without lowering viability of the seed. Bromegrass resisted heat injury from temperatures that have been reported harmful to several other grass species. Laboratory studies showed that resistance to heat injury increased with lowered moisture content of the seed. For safe storage, the moisture content of bromegrass seed should be reduced to 12 percent or less soon after harvest.
