Temperature Tolerance at the Germination stage of Four Rice Cultivars.

The germination of seeds is controlled by several factors. This research focused on the effect of germination rates of four rice cultivars based on temperature and time. Seeds were kept in incubators at four respective temperatures (40C, 150C, 250C, and 300C). Seeds were extracted every 7 days for a total of 28 days. No germination occurred at 4ËšC and 300C. Hence, they did not tolerate low temperatures. However, 250C and 300C incubators showed great variability in germination. The rice cultivar Jasmine 85 produced the greatest number of germinated seeds at 250C and 300C at day 21. Also, overall Jasmine 85 rice showed a considerable difference between the other 3 rice cultivars. From this information these rice cultivars were more susceptible to temperature that ranged around 250C and 300C.
