Abstract

In this experiment two different lots of dill seeds (Anethum graveolens L.): lot A - cv. 'Amat' and lot B - cv. 'Lukullus' were evaluated for their characters in terms of their quality. The seeds of the B lot had a lack of embryos caused by lygus bugs (Lygus ssp.), and as a consequence their germination capacity was lower and the number of seeds qualified in the germination test as healthy ungerminated was larger, in comparison with these seed characters of the A lot. Both lots were heavily colonized by fungi, but the percentage of dead seeds was higher in the B lot than in the A one. The seeds in the B lot were previously injured by lygus bugs.
