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.
