Objectives of the Study
As the search for factors that affect seed germination continues, farmers believe that internal and environmental factors influence the growth performance of the seeds. As a result, the study focused on the effect of acetone on the germination of wheat seeds.
The sprouting of seedlings from the shoot and root of seeds is called germination. However, the factors that affect seed germination under normal conditions differ with soil type and location. Previous literature revealed that under normal conditions the factors that affect seed germination include moisture, temperature, oxygen, and light (Kannan and Upreti 610). However, seed dormancy is a condition that inhibits germination under normal conditions. As a result, the seed fails to disperse under favorable conditions. Seed dormancy exists in different forms, which include exogenous and endogenous dormancy. Exogenous dormancy includes physical, mechanical, and chemical dormancy. However, endogenous dormancy includes physiological, morphological, and combined dormancy.
