Notes: Moisture Content Influences Dormancy of Stored Loblolly Pine Seed
Abstract:In Pinus taeda L. dormancy is greatest when seed is stored at 10 to 18 percent moisture. Seed is least dormant above this range but deteriorates more rapidly. Storage below 10 percent moisture is recommended to preserve viability and prevent deep dormancy.
