ACCELERATED AGING ON CORN SEED
FRANCISCO FERRAZ DE TOLEDO ROBERTO SIMIONATO DE MORAES
This paper deals with "accelerated aging test" on com seeds. There are
doubt about the use of this test to compare different genetic materiais from one specie. As
such, a series of laboratory trials were carried out using this method on seeds of three
corn population named "Flint Population", "Indent Population" and "Centralmex". The data
collected led to the following conclusion: seeds of "Flint Population" were less sensitive to
this method than those of "Centralmex" and, probably, than the "Indent Population".
