ABSTRACT: The aim of this work was evaluate the influence of Sulphur ultra dilute
on germination and initial growth of sorghum seedlings (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench –
cv TX623B). Sulphur sequential dynamizations (2SD to 30SD) on super dilution scale
(Super Diluition – SD) besides water control were added to Petri dishes previously
prepared with 20 sorghum seeds each one. The experiment was conducted in a
germination chamber for 7 days at a temperature of 25°C and a 16h photoperiod. The
experimental design was completely randomized. Data were subjected to variance
analysis and the means compared by Scott-Knott test at 5% probability. The variables
analyzed were: germination percent (PG), shoot length (CPA), root system length
(CSR), fresh mass (MF) and dry matter (MS) of sorghum seedlings. Homeopathic
treatments affected sorghum germination and growth, sometimes inhibiting or
stimulating the variables studied depending on dynamization assessed.
