Factors Influencing Germination in Beardless WildryeWagner, R. C.; Chapman, S. R. (Society for Range Management, 1970-11-01)The effects of pretreatment, strains, temperature and germination solutions on germination were studied in beardless wildrye. Rate of imbibition was also studied. Total imbibition was not influenced by either strains or solutions. For the two strains studied optimum conditions appear to be germination in distilled water with alternating temperatures of 15-20 C preceded by moist prechilling at 1.5 C.
