The extent of seed dormancy in hybrids and their parents was investigated during the 1994 wet season. Harvested seeds from parents, hybrids, and check varieties were stored in paper bags and tested for germination at 5-d intervals. The study included the hybrids IR58025A/IR9761-19-R and IR58025A/ IR29723-143-3-2-1R, male parent IR62829A, and check varieties Mandya Vijaya and IR20.
