An accelerated ageing technique was used to determine viability and vigour in fresh (seeds stored at 4°C before used as a control) and aged marrow and wheat seeds. Germination percentage, germination speed, seedling length and seedling fresh weight were decreased in aged seeds. Moreover, the time to reach 50% final germination, percentage fall in growth and percentage and type of abnormal seedlings increased in aged seeds.
