Resumen

The experiment was carried out in the laboratory at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, University of Granma. The aim of the experiment was to evaluate the effect of QuitoMax on seed germination and the growth of cucumber seedlings. Four experimental variants were evaluated: 1.5, 1, 0.5, and 0.25  concentrations, in which the seeds were imbibed for 4 hours. The dynamics of germination, height, and fresh mass of the seedlings were evaluated 15 days after. The results showed the effect of QuitoMax on germination dynamics. The seeds in the 1.5  concentration underwent the shortest germination time, and showed the best effect on plant height. The fresh mass increased in the 1.5  concentration.
