Although it is relatively well known that adult plants tend to accumulate proline and trehalose in their tissues as a physiological mechanism in response to drought, there is scarce information about the development of this physiological response in seeds. Thus, the objective of this research was to verify if maize seeds are able to develop mechanism of osmoprotection, when are germinating under low osmotic potential, and the possibility to use the levels of trehalose and proline in a defineddoi:10.1590/1807-1929/agriambi.v20n1p22-28 fatcat:j3plmqmakrckxinswih53obcqa
