Abstract

Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) will tolerate some ice in their
tissue provided the temperature does not fall below -1°C (1): The
purpose of this study was to look for increased cold tolerance created
by mutations resulting from azide seed treatments. Pinto UI-114, seeds
were placed on wet paper towel for periods ranging from 2 to 17 hours
and then submerged in an aerated azide-solution for 2 hours before
planting. The azide solution was a 10-³ M NaN? in 0.1M NaH? PO?
buffered to pH 3 (3).
