Abstract

High rainfall and rapid water uptake by dry seed after sowing in the field can result in so-called seed imbibitional damage. Here, lipid peroxidation levels were evaluated in seed testa, embryos and cotyledons of three soybean cultivars (Podravka 95, Tisa and Vita), after 3, 6, 12 and 24 h of seed imbibition in water at 20oC. In general, lipid peroxidation was enhanced in soybean embryos and the lowest vales were observed in seed testa. With respect to imbibition duration, the highest lipid peroxidation was observed after 3 h of imbibition and decreased thereafter in seed of Podravka 95 and Vita, with similar trend regarding seed of the same age.
