Q.Photodormancy of Carrot Seeds

Anonymous added on February 18, 2011 | Answered

Is it true that carrot seeds need sunlight before they will germinate? The planting method goes like this: Sow seeds in a shallow trench. Water the seeds with a sprinkler. Wait 24 hours (this meets the light requirement) and cover with a 1/4 in. to 1/2 inch of soil.

While some kinds of plants do need light to germinate, carrots are not among them. They will germinate fine with or without light.
