Abstract

Apparently the hull covering on oat seeds afforded some protection to the seed from X-rays, although the degree of protection varied among varieties. At X-ray dosages of 30,000r to 40,000r the large seeds were damaged more than the small ones when measured by germination percentage or reduction in seedling vigor. The damage from X-rays was not completely related to the germ sizes of the 2 seed classes.
