Synopsis

Synopsis

Various degrees of post-harvest dormancy were found in ten wheat varieties as indicated by germination speed and by specificity of germination temperature. The dormancy remained when stored at 3° C. but disappeared within one month when stored at room temperature or at 38° C. The dormancy was not related to impermeable testa or barrier for gas exchange. The presence of growth inhibitors was demonstrated.
