When topsoil containing seeds was collected from the Colorado Desert, spread on washed sand in flats, and kept in day and night temperatures of 18 [degrees] C and 8-13 [degrees] C, respectively, winter annuals germinated
and ungerminated sorghum flours, five complementary foods were formulated as shown in Table 1.
The saplings Gerry germinated
and grew from the donated seeds are displayed in earthenware pots and are each accompanied by large, beautiful photographs of the seeds.
brown rice, which is rich in GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) and dietary fiber, has a positive affect on intestinal functions and antimutagenic activities.
The team reports that 40 percent more pollen grains germinated
in sun trackers than in blooms restrained at random angles.
Cleaned maize grains were divided into four treatment groups, namely: germinated
, fermented maize (GFM); germinated
, non-fermented maize (GNFNM); non-germinated
, fermented maize (NGFM) and non- germinated
, non-fermented maize (NGNM) (Figure 3).
Scientists in Singapore have shown that germinated
black soybeans under fungal stress can be fermented into a soy yogurt with diminished levels of flatulence-causing oligosaccharides.
Not a greenhouse, necessarily, because that is far too costly to heat when it is just a few packets of seed that are being germinated
In the experiment, the two partners germinated
and grew three submerged plants: water nymph, tape grass and charophyceae.
A seed was considered germinated
with 2 mm emergence of the radicle.
Seeds planted by the scientists in both the debris-strewn spots and exposed areas germinated
, but moisture then seemed to make a vital difference in survival.
They easily kill the young nubbins that have recently germinated
As a general rule, seed for root crops is best sown in drills outside when conditions have sufficiently improved for the seedbed to be raked into a fine tilth because the seedlings will be less disturbed than if germinated
the historical way, in seed trays.
This fall Nancy Buge's fourth-grade students at Encino Elementary School successfully germinated
acorns of Valley oak trees, which grow in a park adjacent to the school.
In almost all trials, 100 percent of the seeds germinated
in response to the experimental treatments, while the control seeds stayed dormant.
