A series of experiments were performed to evaluate effects of lettuce seed treatment with low temperature and dry heat treatment (DHT) on bolting response in the case of spring cultivation. During spring production in greenhouse, bolting response of the plants produced from the treated seeds was faster in the order of low temperature treatment, control and DHT. Plant height was increased 5-10 cm higher by low temperature treatment, but plant growth of some cultivars was inhibited by DHT. Difference on lettuce plant growth between low temperature treatment and DHT was gradually diminished with the lapse of time after transplanting. Fresh weight of plant was not significantly different among all treatments. 'Red Gyeolku' showed very early bolting response and plant height was significantly promoted by low temperature treatment. However, 'Cheongchima' showed low bolting percentage after various seed treatments, so it is considered late-bolting cultivar.
