Tlio feu Tct,
Frofcssor "W. CnrriithcWj consulling
botnnist to thc liovnl Aiinculturnl so
cicty of Englnnd, givcs this plnn for de
icnniiiiiif,' thc germinnting powcr of a
sanvnlc of sccds, tojrcthcr with nn illus
irativo cxmn)lc of tho importniico of
8iich tcsts. "W c quoto from thc suinmnry
of thc Mark Lanc lixprem :
Lct 200, or 100, or fifty, ns may be
thought bcst, of thc sccds bc counted
out nnd plnced one dccp on thc surfncc
of n ldntc. This plnto should tbcn bc
plnceu Jn a lnrgcr plnto or in n shallow
jian, containing nbout a quartcr of nn
mch in dcpth of watcr, nnd ovcr nll
thcrc should bc invcrtcd nnothcr
jwn, suflicicntly ' largc to cntirely
mclosc tho vcsscl contnining tho wntcr.
Tho dcpth of wntcr should not bc sulli
cicnt to nllow of its ovcrflowing into thc
platc containing tlio sccds. Thc wholo
arrnngcmciit should thcn bc sct in a
modcratcly wnrm plncc, and thus thc
sccds will bc subjcctcd to all thc eondi
tions favorablc to gcnnination, namcly,
air, lnoisturc, darkncss and warmtli.
Thc air will eirculato frccly bcncath tho
cdgcs of thc invcrtcd pan; thc atmos
phcrc insido thc pan will bc quitc satu
ratcd with moisturo, for ovaporation will
continually go on from thc surfaco of thc
incloscd wntcr; light will bc cxcludcd
by thc invcrtcd )an, and thc tcmpcraturo
of a rcgularly-uscd kitchcn will vcry wcll
fiuflicc to inducc gcrmination.
A little frcsh watcr should bc pourcd
in now and thcn to rcplacc that which
cvnporatc, thc covcr-pan bcing niomen
tarily removcd for this purpose. Even in
onc and thc sanic sample sonic of thc
sccds will always gcrminatc bcforc
othcrs; but when thc youngshoots of thc
first to gcrminatc havo attaincd a lcngth
of from half an inch to onc inch, it may
bc fairly concludcd that all thc sccds
capablc of gcnninating havc done so, and
thcn it is only necessary to count tho
numbcr of sccds which havc not germi
natcd, and to cstimatc thc pcrccntagc
of failurcs An cxact numbcr of
sccds need not neccssarily bc takcn,
and, indccd, it is perhaps faircr to
takc a spoonful haphazard out of thc
sainplc, count thcsc, and placo thcm nll
in thc gcrmiiiating npparatus. Suppose
143 f-ccils havo thus bccn takcn, and that
102 of thcsc arc found to gcrminatc;
tlicn out ofl4!i thcrc arc 41 failurcs ; so that
wc should infcrthat nbout twcnty-eight
pcr ccnt. of thc sccds in thc sample would
not gcrminatc whcn sown. A moro cor
rcet rcsult is obtaincd by conducting
two, or cven thrce, distinct scts of ex
pcrimcnts siinultaneously, and striking a
mcan bctwccn thc scvcral rcsults, which,
by tho way, should not show much vnria
tion. Thc rcport statcs that in scvcral sam
ples of sccds of Alopccurus pniteiiMi, thc
coninion and uscful mcadow foxtail grass,
a vcry small pcrccntagc sonictimcs only
onc or two of tho sccds wcrc abiu to
gcrminatc. This is attributcd to tho fact
that thc sccds wcrc gathcrcd unripc, and
in many cacs tho samplo consisted only
of empty glumcs, so that it waslikcchail
without any grain. Pos'-ibly, howcvcr,
thcro arc still miiuo tradcrs who adoit
tho pernicious practico of working oll
thcir old stock by mixing old sccds with
new oncs, just as groccrs inix thcir old
Uarcclona nuts with tho new scason's
arrivals; and if tho old sccds havc lost
thcir vitality, thc snmplc is, of coursc,
scriously doprcciatcd. if tho practice of
dctermining thc gcrmiiiating powcr of
sccds bcforo sowing wcrc moro gcncrally
followcd wc should probably licar les of
thc plowing up of land on which sown
sccds had failcd to ''strike."
