The Effect of Scarification and Acid Bathing?
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / None
City:Regina, SK
School:Luther College High School
Abstract:This project explored two methods of scarification (mechanical and chemical) of the seeds of the Ratibida columnifera. Days to germination and total number of seeds germinated were the studied variables. A rock tumbler and lime juice were used to scarify the seeds. Both mechanical and chemical scarification resulted in improved germination of the R. columnifera. This may have important implications for prairie grasslands restoration projects.
