Abstract:
This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of scarification treatments in the germination of Lupinus leptophyllus Schlecht and Cham; seeds were tested with different times of exposure to sulfuric acid immersion and heat. All the treatments induced germination two days after the start of the experiment and reached their maximum value between the days twenty-seven and twenty-nine, almost at the end of the experiment. Seeds treated with sulphuric acid, responded positively in all cases, the immersion in acid for fifteen minutes was the treatment that gave the best results. The treatment with heat at 80°C had lower germination than the control. However, in all the other cases, the seeds responded positively and at temperatures of 140 and 110°C for 2 min the best results were obtained.
