THE EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS ON SEED GERMINATION IN CHESTNUT

T. Karadeniz, S. Zeki Bostan, A. Islam
This study was carried out to determine the effects of different applications on percentage of germination in chestnut seeds. The seeds were stratificated at 4°C for 1, 2, 3 and 4 months in refrigerator. The 50 ppm, 100 ppm and 200 ppm GA3 solutions were applied to seeds that were stratificated at 4°C for one month. Percentages of germination of seeds without GA3 application and stratificated at 4°C for one month are higher than seeds applications with GA3. On the other hand, in the seeds that were stratificated for 2, 3 and 4 months at 4°C in refrigerator, the highest germination percentage was determined for seeds that were stratificated for 2 months as 78%. There were some significant differences for the effects of applications on germination.
