Abstract/Contents:"Germination results are presented for S48 timothy seed dried at air temperatures of from 75 to 135° after direct harvesting at 3 moisture levels, followed by cold-air conditioning for periods of from 1 to 3 days. The effect of conditioning was to increase the resistance of the seed to high drying-air temperatures, without producing any real improvement at low temperatures. The results for non-conditioned seed, published earlier, are converted to simple chart form giving the limits of initial moisture content and drying-air temperature for 90% germination. These charts can be used during the final drying of conditioned seed, provided that the original moisture content at harvest is within the "safe" range."
