Emergence of Corn in Relation to Soil Oxygen Diffusion Rates1
- R. W. Wengel2
Percent emergence of corn from soil was related to soil oxygen diffusion rates in an exponential manner. A “critical” diffusion rate range of 20–25 ✕ 10−8 g O2 cm−2 min−1 was indicated. Oxygen concentrations in the soil atmosphere may have been a factor affecting emergence independent of the oxygen supply based on plantinum electrode measurements.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
