Some Effects of Paradichlorobenzene, Napthalene, DDT and Ceresan on the Germination of Field Crop Seed1

Synopsis

Synopsis

Open containers were more satisfactory than closed when paradichlorobenzene and naphthalene were used as seed-storage chemicals. DDT reduced seed viability the least. Ceresan M was convenient to use, but it decreased germination. Naphthalene did not decrease seed viability as rapidly as paradichlorobenzene, which decreased germination faster than the other chemicals studied. Packaging seed in paper bags before placing it in a container with paradichlorobenzene did not substantially increase viability over placing it in direct contact with the chemical.
