The role of primary carbohydrate metabolism in wheat grain dormancy and germination

Dennis, Ross


Germination is the first step in a plant's life history, critical to giving plants the best chance of surviving and prospering. Germination involves a suit of processes that culminate in the emergence of the seedling from the seed coat and requires considerable amounts of energy, particularly in the form of sugar.
