FERREIRA, Elane Grazielle Borba de Sousa et al. Overcoming of dormancy of crista de galo in seeds. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2012, vol.42, n.5, pp. 808-813. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782012000500008.

This study had the objective of evaluating the effect of different pre-germination treatments for overcome of dormancy of Celosia cristata seeds, subjected to the following treatments: heat shock - exhibition in an oven at 80°C for 5 minutes, chemical scarification with sulfuric acid for 1 minute, 30 seconds and 5 minutes, immersion of intact seeds in water the 80°C at cooling and immersion of intact seeds in water for 24 hours, and the control - no treatment. We evaluated the following final percentage, first count and germination speed index, but also the length of the primary root and hypocotyl. The seeds of C. cristata when coming from ripe fruits do not require the use of treatments to overcoming dormancy.

Palabras llave : Celosia cristata; germination; vigor.
