The extensive planting of black locust in various parts of the country for erosion control requires the production of many millions of seedlings annually. A large proportion of black locust seed have impermeable coats which prevent or delay germination in the nursery beds. The recently increased use of this species has emphasized the importance of developing methods of seed treatment to obtain more prompt and complete germination. The following paper describes a mechanical scarifier for conditioning large quantities of seed rapidly and cheaply and sets forth the results obtained.
