Alleviation of Imbibitional Chilling Injury by Use of Lanolin1
- David A. Priestly and

Imbibitional chilling of seeds is generally associated with rapid entry of water in the cold. A means of alleviating chilling injury would be to retard the entry of water in the cold. Attempts to slow the rate of imbibition of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], corn (Zea mays L.) and cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) seeds through the application of a thin coat of lanolin (20 to 30 g kg−1 seed) provided alleviation of chilling injury in the chilling susceptible soybean and cotton.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
