DescriptionGermination of Lespedeza cuneata and Desmodium pauciflorum seeds from eastern Oklahoma was increased by heating them under moist conditions. Seeds of Desmodium sessilifolium from the same area germinated well without treatment. Moistening and heating did not increase germination of Lespedeza virginica and L. capitata; mechanical scarification was very successful with seeds of these species.
