• Cold Storage Not Required for Fourwing Saltbush Seeds

      Springfield, H. W. (Society for Range Management, 1968-09-01)
      Seeds refrigerated 4 years germinated no better than seeds stored under ordinary conditions. Viability was retained for 6 years under storage at 55 to 95 F.
    • Germination of Winterfat Seeds Under Different Moisture Stresses and Temperatures

      Springfield, H. W. (Society for Range Management, 1968-09-01)
      Germination of winterfat decreased and was delayed as moisture stress increased. Decreases were proportionately less at lower temperatures, which indicates soil drying may not be as detrimental to germination during cool weather. One of the two sources of seed tested germinated better under all moisture stresses. Further research may reveal certain sources are superior for revegetation.
