The effect of seed weight and depth of sowing on the emergence and early seedling growth of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne)


The effect of seed weight and depth of sowing on the emergence and early seedling growth of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne)



J. Br. Grassld Soc 24(2): 104-10



DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2494.1969.tb01053.x

Seedling growth was studied during the 3 weeks following germination. Seeds of both weight ranges germinated equally well at soil depths down to 7.5 cm but the number of shoots that emerged was reduced as the sowing depth increased. At similar depths of sowing, seedlings from the heavy seed were heavier and developed more leaves and tillers than those from light seed. Deeper sowing reduced seedling weight and the rate of leaf-and tiller-production.
