Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jan 1, 2014
End Date: Dec 31, 2014
Identify and evaluate multiple and complementary strategies that could impact the germination success of cotton planted under limited soil moisture conditions.
Both greenhouse and field experiments will be conducted to evaluate single strategy technologies/germplasm under conditions of limited moisture. Data collected will include: emergence velocity, emergence percentage, and a quantitative measure seedling health or condition. In subsequent trials, combinations of strategies will be evaluated. Dehulled seed will be evaluated for enhanced imbibition.
