Scientific Digest
Predicting Preharvest Sprouting Susceptibility in Barley: A Model Based on Temperature during Grain Filling

M. Veronica Rodriguez, Martin Margineda, Juan F. Gonzalez-Martin, Pedro Insausti, and Roberto L. Benech-Arnold

ABSTRACT: Preharvest sprouting (PHS) susceptibility in cereals is a conse- quence of low grain dormancy before harvest. Dormancy loss rate depends on genotype and may also be affected by environmental conditions during seed formation. To establish a quantitative relation- ship between temperature and PHS susceptibility, a malting barley Hordeum vulgare L.) cultivar, ‘Quilmes Palomar’, was sown on differ- ent dates over a 3-yr period to obtain a range of thermal conditions during grain fillin (soil type: Aeric Argiudoll). The period from pollination to physiological maturity (PM) was adjusted to a thermal time (TT) scale, which was then divided into 50 C-day intervals. Mean temperature within each interval was calculated for the different sow- ing dates. Grain dormancy was monitored using a germination index GI). We sought a linear relationship between temperature during grain filling and GI at some moment after PM.
