Harvesting Vernonia Anthelmintica (L.) Willd. to Reduce Seed Shattering Losses1
- John H. Massey2
Results from four methods of harvesting Vernonia anthelmintica (L.) Willd. seed indicated that the highest yield (1,369 kg/ha) was obtained by cutting and windowing plants before seedheads opened. When harvest was delayed until all seed had ripened, yields were reduced to 264 kg/ha by shattering. Other methods gave intermediate yields.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
