ApeX

Many perennials from seed such as Lavandula exhibit seed dormancy. Depending on the species, the dormancy of the seed can be very pronounced. Dormancy is a natural survival mechanism from adverse/stressful climatic conditions that can occur in nature.

Seed dormancy is not desirable for modern growers. Mechanical sowing into plug trays demands uniform and high percentage seed germination. Various post harvest techniques are used by seed companies to break dormancy. Depending on the species, specific techniques can assist to break seed dormancy.

Methods such as resting the seed for a specific period of time, and chemical treatments to the seed can be used to ‘break’ seed dormancy to insure that the seed is in a usable condition for growers.
