Seed germination is the process in which a seed grows into
Seeds can be a small package in
The fully developed seeds contain food restores or an embryo that can be germinated. There are many types of seeds that do not have embryos, such seeds cannot germinate. They are called as dormant seeds.
End of germination can be noted by radicle, where in the seed utilizes the food restore in it.
There are many other types of germination

Questions and Answers:
- What are the factors that are to be considered for seed germination?
A. There are many internal and external factors that affect the process of seed germination.
Water is required for germination because the mature seeds require
Oxygen is required for metabolism during germination and the temperature affects the rate at which the plants
2. What is seed dormancy?
A. Seed dormancy is the stage where the seed stops germinating or progressing further.
This happens at
3. What is seedling establishment?
A. Seedling establishment is the stage where the seed starts utilising the food in the restore.
This phase is important especially during the stages of seed development when it is vulnerable to breakage and loss of water.
4. Explain germination in simple terms step by step?
A. Seed germination is a very simple process that can be
This process is called
In order to access the water, the seed grows a root. In the process of germination, the seeds do not require sunlight.
Seeds can germinate very fast in a day. After the seeds are planted in the pots, they require just sprinkling of water over them to sprout.
The optimum temperature for the seeds to sprout is 80 degrees F. In order to speed up the germination is to pre-soak the seeds overnight and then plant them in the soil.
Phytochrome helps the seed to germinate without light, it sprouts up successfully in darkness.
