Propagation of Juniperus: Challenges to Propagation and Opportunities for Improvement
Scott A. Lee, Bert M. Cregg, and Clark Fleege

and embryo dormancy. The germination rate of seed sown may be increased through seed
quality testing and treating seed to overcome dormancy. We discuss methods to separate
seed, and improve seed quality and pre-treatment techniq ues to overcome dormancy.
