Effect of soil moisture content on the field emergence of various crops under rainfed condition in Vindhyan plateau of Madhya Pradesh



Effect of soil moisture content on the field emergence of various crops under rainfed condition in Vindhyan plateau of Madhya Pradesh



Crop Research (Hisar) 8(2): 245-247



A field trial was conducted to study the effect of soil moisture content on the field emergence of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius, linseed (Linum usitatissimum), gram (Cicer arietinum) and lentil (Lens culinaris). Pulses recorded better field emergence than the oilseeds at a particular soil moisture content.Safflower required soil moisture percentage for field emergence higher than linseed and gram. Lentil required lowest soil moisture for field emergence. These were significantly influenced by the soil moisture content and also had significant positive correlation. For achieving the better emergence of these crops, the soil moisture percentage below 11.0 for safflower, 10.7 for linseed, 10.4 for gram and 8.34 for lentil should be avoided.
