Effect of Gibberellic Acid Upon Seedling Emergence of Slow and Fast Emerging Wheat Varieties1

  1. Robert E. Allan,
  2. O. A. Vogel and
  3. J. C. Craddock2



Soaking seeds in solutions of gibberellic acid stimulated slow-emerging wheat varieties to emerge at rates comparable to rapid-emerging varieties under both greenhouse and field conditions. Gibberellic acid treatment adversely affected seedling survival of 3 rapid-emerging varieties but did not influence survival of 2 slow-emerging varieties. Treatment did not stimulate coleoptile elongation of any varieties tested.
