Southern pine seeds coated with repellents can be stored for at least a year, even after stratification, without losing viability or becoming dormant. Moreover, the full effectiveness of the repellent coatings is retained. These findings were obtained in a study at Alexandria, Louisiana, with seed of longleaf, slash, lobolly, and shortleaf pines. They will be helpful to landowners who direct-seed because it is often necessary to store stratified, repellent-coated seed for several weeks when bad weather delays operations. Occasionally, treated seed must be stored a full year.
