weight has been positively correlated with seed vigor ( Smith et al., 1973a ) and seedling growth after emergence ( Smith et al., 1973b ). In Expt. 1, seed performance was evaluated by a) SG test or the ability to produce normal seedlings under optimal

cultivar seed was produced at a different location than the NPGS accession seed. Therefore, the observed seed performance is potentially affected by genotype by environment interactions. After 7 d at 5 °C, 13 NPGS accessions (seven cos and six leaf) had 100
