Answering my own questions again - I found a great online (free) review article


This sums it up :-(

<The situation is further complicated by the fact that, although germination is an all-or-nothing event for each seed, populations display variable degrees of dormancy that are reflected in the rate or percentage of germination under specific conditions. Presumably, each seed is in a state somewhere along the continuum from deeply dormant to nondormant, but it remains unclear how the tipping point between nonpermissive and permissive for germination is sensed for each seed>

I was thinking I might try to figure out some way to improve % and rate of germination of IMM seeds... not encouraging.
