Zusammenfassung

Ethrel verhindert den Ruhezustand von «Cabbage»-Salatsamen, der durch hohe Temperaturen verursacht wird. Es wird angenommen, dass die Hemmung der Salatsamenkeimung durch hohe Temperaturen vermittelt wird, besonders durch ihre Wirkung auf die endogene Bildung des Äthylens, welches eine Schlüsselrolle bei der Samenkeimung spielt.
