Seeds with low vigour as a result of ageing showed a large improvement in seed quality following a 40 minutes soak in water in case of marrow, and an 80 minutes soak in water in case of wheat, reflected in increased germination percentage and seedling vigour compared with the non-primed control seeds. These findings may be resulted from the repair of previously sustained deterioration.
