dc.description.abstractEthanol and acetaldehyde production by cotton seeds subjected to anoxic stress imposed by CO₂ or N₂ gas was quantified during the imbibition phase. Fermentation capacity was low in dry seeds and quickly increased during the first few hours of imbibition. In hydrated seeds, ethanol and acetaldehyde excretion following anoxic stress followed a linear trend in time. Ethanol excretion exceeded that of acetaldehyde by an order of magnitude. Similar rates of production were observed whether anoxic was imposed by either CO₂ or N₂ gas. Excreted ethanol and acetaldehyde were rapidly metabolized following alleviation of anoxic stress.
