FACTORS AFFECTING THE GERMINATION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF MONOGERM SUGAR BEET


3.3.5         Conclusion

 

The experiments carried out in this investigation have confirmed the difficulties involved in testing beet seed due to its inherent variability in size, inhibitor levels and other factors.

The seed treatments used shortened mean germination times at standard temperatures and also at low temperatures.  The following general discussion considers the possible uses of the finding of the experiments for improving establishment in the field.
