You probably should not use TNT to try to increase germination



You ARE referring to TNT explosives! I wondered what other chemical had the same abbreviation.

You have to wonder what would have made them think to try it in the first place…

I think it’s related to bioremediation of toxic sites.

Cass is exactly right. WE spent several years studying how to use plants to degrade TNT. It is a big issue at places that used to make explosives, even in WW II.
