Abstract/Contents:"Mechanical scarification greatly improved the germination of Lehmann Lovegrass seed. Depending on the type and duration of scarification, seed germination can be improved from 10%-20% germination (untreated seed) to over 90% (60-second scarification in a commercial seed scarifier). Black grama is sensitive to both dehulling, and dehulling followed by scarification. Unhulled black gama seed should be used for field plantings."
