Sodium chloride as an inhibitor of recalcitrant seeds
Sodium chloride or sodium chloride (NaCl), known as the salts are substances that have a high osmotic levels. These compounds in the treatment process recalsitran seed storage medium serves as inhibitors that inhibit the metabolic processes function so that the seed germination of the seed recalsitran can be inhibited. With the ability level of a high osmotic this then when NaCl dissolved in water, the water will have a value or a high concentration that can mengimbibisi water content (low concentration) / low concentrate contained in the body of the seed so that it will be obtained the balance of the water content in these seeds. This can happen because the H2O will move from a low concentration to regions of high concentration. This is very beneficial for the seed recalsitran, because as we know recalsitran seeds are seeds that have a high level of water content and very sensitive to low water levels decline. High water levels cause seed germination and recalsitran always have moldy during storage or shipment to the place of destination. However, by treatment with sodium chloride (NaCl) then this can be resolved.
