 Hi folks,
 
 does anyone out there know how to make Brazil nuts germinate faster? My
 information is that it can be done by treatment with alkaline (NaOH) or
 sulfuric acid. My questions are:
 1. is there any improved treatment? If so, how do you do it?
 2. for the alkaline or acid treatment: what concentration of NaOH or sulfuric
 acid do you use and  how long is the solution applied for?
 
 Also: does anyone know if and how the nuts are treated before export? 
 
 Any comments and  suggestions appreciated
 
 thanks in advance
 
 Antje
