To observe the influence of the color in the treatments they had been gotten from the white light that exceeded two sheets of paper blue cellophane, red and yellow, respectively. The dark continuous was involving the boxes gerbox in paper aluminum. All the set was made use in plastic trays, humidified daily with 20 mL of ADE and, incubados in estande of steel with two white florescentes lights (40 w), the 30 cm of distance, under for a period of seven days. The evaluation consisted of after making the reading to the seven days the plantation of the seeds through the register of the percentage of plntulas normal verified in the germination test, lengths of the aerial part and the root (BRAZIL, 1992). RESULTS AND QUARREL seven days of the beginning of the sowing to the emission of plntulas, the results of the readings of germination of seeds of maize in paper germitest had after indicated that the treatment carried through through the dark continuous 93% of germination of the seeds of maize, followed of the treatment with the seeds submitted to the red color registered (90%). The treatments using the colors yellow and blue had not shown difference in the germination (86.25%) (Tab. 1).
The seeds when submitted to the germination in boxes gerbox it was verified that the result of the percentage of germination in the dark continuous (95%) was similar to the assay with paper germitest (93.75%), followed of the red color with 90% (Tab.2). The maize seeds when submitted to the germination in box gerbox, it was verified that difference in the length of the aerial part and the roots between the treatments did not occur (Tab. 3 and 4).
