Abstract
Laboratory experiment was conducted to elucidate the physiological factor determining the association of seed size and seed coat quality with varietal differences in seed vigour, and to pursue an alternative on the mechanism of varietal differences in seed resistance to field weathering. Results of this study revealed that seed polymer change (seed volume change minus seed weight change during moisture imbibition) was the physiological factor determining the association of seed size and seed coat quality with varietal differences in seed vigour. The mechanism of varietal differences in seed resistance to field weathering, therefore, seemes to be mainly controlle...
