http://www.durgan.org/URL/?YDOOH 10 February 2013 Quinoa.Checking germination.
Some red quinoa was purchased from the bulk food store (Bolivia) and was checked for germination.A few grams of seed was placed on a water soaked folded kleenex and placed on a covered side plate, placed on top of a cupboard about 72F. Germination occurred in two days.This obviates the necessity to purchase expensive seed. I plan on setting about 50 plants at one foot intervals in two rows about one foot apart.The expectation being about one pound of threshed seed from four plants for around ten pounds of product.Plants and/or seeds will be placed in the outdoor garden about the end of May in my Zone 5.
