Title: Sweetgum Dormancy Release: Effects of Chilling, Photoperiod, and Genotype

Author: Farmer, Robert E. Jr.;

Date: 1968

Source: Physiologia Plantarum 21:1241-1248

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: In L., 1200 to 1600 hours of chilling (3 D C) resulted in rapid resumption of growth under greenhouse forcing conditions. Long photoperiods were effective substitutes for chilling. Plants from southern Alabama (Lat. 31°) had a lower chilling requirement than those from western Tennessee (Lat. 36°). Growth rate of plants under long photoperiod varied directly with degree of previous chilling.
