The results of 3-year investigation on the effect of two seed dressing
preparations, Zaprawa nasienna T and Funaben T, on the rate of protein
autolysis in homogenates prepared from germs of eight pea cultivars during
seed germination are presented. The rate of protein autolysis is a
cultivar-specific trait and changes during the germination of seeds. The
application of seed dressing changed this process, decidedly stimulating
it after 40 h and after 7-days' germination, but inhibiting it after 96 h
as compared with the control.
