These adversities influence plant stands and their yield and reduction in seed germination and subsequent growth are unfortunate consequences.Seed is fundamental in agriculture, especially in crop production.Coating seeds with a water absorbing substance offers a way to buffer the seed against insufficient moisture in the surrounding soil.

Full article Figure 4 A comparison of the effect of drought stress on the height of coated and uncoated Piper and Susu seedlings assessed on the tenth day after sowing.
(FC denotes soil moisture content at field capacity, bars indicated standard error of the mean and letters on bars are a comparison between the different moisture levels for the same treatment).
We hypothesize that the higher mobilization efficiency [...] Read more.
Seed coating is a technology to improve germination and homogenize stand establishment.Therefore, the quality of seed must be kept under consideration. Mirza Hasanuzzaman Manuscript Submission Information Manuscripts should be submitted online at com by registering and logging in to this website. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website.As seeds are the biological products they can deteriorate both in storage and in varying field conditions. Loss of seed germination as well as vigority affects crop production negatively. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited.Sorghum varieties differed in their responses to both soil water deficit and coating materials.In general, Stockosorb improved seedling performance under water limited conditions particularly by promoting root growth, whereas Geohumus did not.Biomass, root length, plant height, leaf area, and leaf extension rate were monitored in two-day intervals for 24 days.Coating strongly affected seedling growth both under fully watered and water deficit conditions.The effects of drought on sorghum during seedling establishment have not been determined. Climate change poses a threat to sorghum production systems by shifting the onset of the rainy season to a later date, increasing the risk of crop failure during crop establishment.The effects of drought on sorghum during seedling establishment have not been determined.Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.Climate change poses a threat to sorghum production systems by shifting the onset of the rainy season to a later date, increasing the risk of crop failure during crop establishment.
