Effects of Presoaking, Moisture Tension, and Soil Salinity on the Emergence of Grain Sorghum1

  1. Leon Lyles and
  2. Carl D. Fanning2



Presoaking increased emergence of RS610 grain sorghum slightly (maximum 26%) where the soil moisture tension exceeded Y$ atm. and salt concentrations did not exceed 10 mmhos./cm. Critical total, soil moisture stress for the variety studied was about 8 alms. Increasing moisture tension and/or soil salinity increased emergence time and decreased total emergence.
