MUNIZ, Marlove Fátima Brião; GONCALVES, Nilton; GARCIA, Danton Camacho  e  KULCZYNSKI, Stela Maris. Comparison of methods to evaluated physiological and health quality in melon seeds. Rev. bras. sementes [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.2, pp.144-149. ISSN 0101-3122.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31222004000200020.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of different vigour tests in the identification of vigour levels and health quality of melon seeds (Cucumis melo L.). Four seed lots of the Gaúcho and Carvalho cultivars produced in Hulha Negra-RS were evaluated. Seeds were submitted to the germination tests, first germination counting, field emergency, controlled deterioration, accelerated aging test, seedlings vigour classification, cold vigour test and health test. Results indicated that the controlled deterioration and accelerated aging tests presented enough sensitivity for evaluating physiological potential melon seeds but evaluation of seedlings tests did not show enough sensitivity to accomplish a classification of lots. Aspergillus ssp. and Fusarium oxysporum were detected in seeds and showed height correlation with dead seeds in vigour tests.

Palavras-chave : Cucumis melo; germination; vigour; health test.
