The objective of this work was to evaluatethe effect of parsley seed primingwith Ascophyllum nodosumon germination, seedling growth and seedling production. Cultivars Crespa and Lisa were used, and the doses of 0; 1; 2; 4 and 8 mL L-1, in a completely randomized design, with a 2 x 5 factorial scheme. Germination percentage, root protrusion speed, seedling length and dry mass, percentage and emergence velocity of plants, height seedlings, number of leaves andlength of roots. Conditioning with Ascophyllum nodosumdoes not lead to improvement in germination, seedling growth and seedling production.
