Improving Germination Success of Winter Wheat

February 4, 2015 9:31 am

Scientists at the USDA recently determined soil water status can have a significant impact on the germination success of winter wheat (Wuest & Lutcher 2013).

Although it has long been known that soil moisture content can have a significant impact on seed germination, scientists at USDA have emphasised it is actually soil water potential which is the most important parameter for successful seed germination.

Decagon Device’s WP4C Dewpoint Potentiameter was used by scientists at USDA to accurately measure soil water potential and determine the successful germination of various cultivars of wheat.
