I am doing a project on factors that affect radish seed germination. I was wondering if you had any information on the affect of seeds and temperature? If you had any information that would be great! Thanks!

Raphanus sativus (radish) seeds are some of the most adaptable to soil conditions and will germinate at soil temperatures of 45F-85F. Some seeds are not as tolerant. For instance, seeds of corn and tomatoes require much warmer soil temperatures (70F-85F), and peas and lettuce will germinate at about 50F. Hope this information helps!
