3825. Lafond, G.P. and D.B. Fowler. 1989. Soil temperature and moisture stress effects on kernel water uptake and germination of winter wheat.. Agron. J. 81:447-450..
Direct seeding of wheat into standing stubble in Saskatchewan is often done into dry soil. This study examined the importance of soil temperature and moisture potential on kernel water uptake and germination, so that the minimum requirements for successful crop establishment could be identified. The effects of temperature on speed of germination were much larger than those of moisture, indicating that seeding of stubbled-in winter wheat should proceed at the optimum date regardless of seedbed moisture conditions.
