Effects of Time of Harvest at Different Moisture Contents on Seed Fresh Weight, Dry Weight, Quality (Viability and Vigour) and Food Reserves of Peas (Pisum sativum L.)
A.B. Siddique and D. Wright

Abstract:
Harvesting seed crops of peas (Pisum sativum L.) at different moisture content provided evidence that seed vigour appeared after physiological maturity and continued until some time after physiological maturity and then declined as harvesting was delayed. It was observed that seed vigour was highest when seed moisture content was lowest. The results of the present study provided contrasting evidence against Harrington’s hypothesis about seed longevity and deterioration as maximum seed quality was not attained at physiological maturity and this did not start deteriorating after physiological maturity.
