BHERING, Maria Carmen; DIAS, Denise Cunha Fernandes dos Santos; VIDIGAL, Déborah de Souza  e  NAVEIRA, Daniel dos Santos Portocarrero. Accelerated aging of pepper seeds. Rev. bras. sementes [online]. 2006, vol.28, n.3, pp.64-71. ISSN 0101-3122.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31222006000300010.

The objective of this study was to adequate the methodology of accelerated aging test for vigor evaluation of pepper seeds. Six seed lots of pepper were tested for germination, germination at first count, cool germination and accelerated aging. For accelerated aging, the following methods were tested: traditional (100% RH) and modified (76% RH), at 38, 42 and 45ºC for 48, 72 and 96 hours. The accelerated aging test was efficient for vigor evaluation of pepper seeds producing results similar to the first count and cool germination test, especially when conducted at 38 or 42ºC for 96 hours by both traditional and modified methods.

Palavras-chave : Capsicum frutescens; physiological quality; vigor; germination.
