Effects of Pre-sowing Wetting and Drying on the Vigor and Germination of Maize Seeds.

Keywords: Normal seedlings, xenomorphic, pre-soaking, drought hardening

A study was conducted to determine the effects of pre-sowing wetting and drying seeds on the vigor and germination of maize (Zea mays L.) seeds. Seeds subjected to various cycles (1 to 4 cycles) or wetting and drying before sowing improved the vigor and germination of seeds over no wetting and drying treatment. Among various cycles of wetting and drying of seeds neither vigor nor germination was affected.
