Effects of sowing depths on coleoptile length and seedling emergence of dwarf wheat varieties



Effects of sowing depths on coleoptile length and seedling emergence of dwarf wheat varieties



Indian Journal of Agronomy 16(1): 117-118



Seeds of 5 dwarf wheat and 1 tall were sown at depths of 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10 cm. With increase in sowing depth, mean coleoptile length increased from 13.8 to 17.2 cm and mean seedling emergence decreased from 84 to 46%.
