Ecology and physiology of Eleusine indica seeds


Chin, H. F. and Raja Harun, Raja Muhammad (1979) Ecology and physiology of Eleusine indica seeds. In: The 7th Asian-Pacific Weed Science Society Conference, 1979, Sydney, Australia. (pp. 313-315).


The ecology, morphology, production and physiology of Eleusine indica seeds were studied. Emphasis was on germination, as it determined success or failure as a competitor in a crop. E. indica seeds germinated best without glumes, at alternating temperatures of 20/35 deg C in light. Soaking seeds prior to incubation resulted in higher germination percentage. There are no natural inhibitors present in the seeds or spikelets to prevent germination. Seeds were soaked in 10-10 000 p.p.m. 2,2-DPA [dalapon], MSMA, paraquat and simazine before germination. Paraquat effectively inhibited germination even at 100 p.p.m.
