Physiological Maturity of Seeds in Triticale hexaploid L.1

  1. U. R. Bishnoi2



The physiological maturity in seeds of two triticale (Triticale hexaploid L.) cultivars was studied during 1972 and 1973. Maximum germination, dry weight, and seedling vigor were attained 24 to 26 days after anthesis. Some seeds were capable of germination 8 days after anthesis. Moisture content decreased slowly from over 78 to 41% at which time functional maturity was attained. After this stage loss of moisture was accelerated and the seed entered into the ripening phase.
