|Citation: ||Merfield, C. N., Hampton, J., Hill, M. & Wratten, S. (2005). The effect of seed moisture content and the duration and temperature of hot water treatment on carrot seed viability and the control of Alternaria Radicina. Poster presented at Researching Sustainable Systems: First Scientific Conference of the International Society of Organic Agriculture Research (ISOFAR), 21-23 September 2005. Adelaide, Australia.|
|Item Type: ||Conference Contribution - Poster Presentation|
|Abstract: ||Hot water treatment of seeds to control seedborne pathogens is an important tool for organic seed
production. Reducing seed moisture content may have the potential to increase carrot (Daucus carota L. var. sativus D.C.) seed tolerance to treatment. Two hot water seed treatment experiments were conducted.|
|Description: ||Thanks to Dr Richard Sedcole and Dr Andrew McLachlan of Lincoln University for assistance with
statistical analysis and Mr Robin Cole of the South Australian Research & Development Institute for
supplying the A. radicina infested carrot seed.|
