Sogurt prepared from germinated soybean with hypocotyls of 3 cm displayed lower pH and higher titratable acidity, and appeared to be more acceptable by a trained sensory panel than sogurts prepared from soybean with hypocotyl lengths of 0 cm and 6 cm.
(1995) that has the following scores: 0 = no symptoms; 1 = hypocotyl with small lesions; 2 = hypocotyl with large lesions, but without constriction; 3 = hypocotyl totally constricted and showing damping-off; 4 = non-germinated seeds and / or seedlings not emerged.
Shoot growth reduction may be related to unsatisfactory imbibition, which inhibits enzymatic activity and, consequently, limits the degradation of reserves, maintaining the hypocotyl reduced and the cotyledons virtually intact, as observed in the present study.
For the root + hypocotyl dry mass and the total dry mass, there was only an interaction between temperature and light, whereas for the root + hypocotyl length, there was an interaction between temperature and seed weight.

Seedlings (Figure 1A and C) are phanerocotylar and epigeal, with axial root, collet visible for presenting slight constriction, hypocotyl long, cylindrical and green, and epicotyl relatively short, cylindrical, green, hairy, with scale like leaves.
After three weeks, the seedlings were excised and separated into two portions: hypocotyl segment including the cotyledonary nodes and epicotyl segment with the apex.
The effect of crude extracts from cultivar BR-1 (aerial part, root, seed, and seed coat) was evaluated on the germination and growth of hypocotyls and rootlets of L.
