RESEARCH AIMED AT A RELIABLE FIELD EMERGENCE OF CARROTS
For seeds, preliminary observations indicate that differences in vigour between gradings and quality of seeds results in differences in field emergence. Most of the differences are differences in levels and not in slopes which seem te be related to the germination % at 7 days count. Priming of the seeds results in earlier emergence and higher yields in the early harvest. Later on there were no differences in yields and grading ratio.
