Cím:Electrical conductivity and germinability of millet seeds from different accessions / Ocwa, A., Acaye F., Abakeer, R.A., Ahmed, A.E.M., Sidahmed, H.M., Harsanyi, E.
Megjegyzések:Physiological quality of millet seeds is one of the main problems of the present time affecting millet production since it affects proper establishment of seedlings in the field. Farmers from different regions in Uganda save and store seeds for planting in the next season after harvesting using different methods hence a likelihood of variation in seed quality. Therefore, this study was conducted to assess the germinability and electrical conductivity of seeds picked from northern and eastern Uganda. Laboratory tests were done at the Department of Agriculture, Kyambogo University in 2020 in Uganda. Experiment was laid as a Completely Randomised Design (CRD) with three replications. Millet seeds collected from Lira, Nebbi and Soroti districts respectively constituted the treatments of the study. Data was collected on germination percentage, germination speed, radical length and electrical conductivity. Electrical conductivity of the millet seeds was recorded in 24hour interval (24, 48 and 72hours). The electrolyte leakage was measured using a conductivity meter. Data was subjected to analysis of variance of Genstat and the means separated using least significant difference (LSD) test at 5% level of significance. There was no significant (p>0.05) difference in germination and electrical conductivity of the millet seeds from the three accessions. Lower electrical conductivity of 8.3, 7.6 and 8.0 ?Scm-1g-1 and higher germination of 86.7, 81.7 and 91.7% in Nebbi, Lira and Soroti districts respectively were recorded. Both electrical conductivity and germination tests proved that the quality of millet seeds from the three accessions was good. However, additional studies with wider scope in terms of millet varieties and accessions is needed to validate the result of this study
