Abstract
It is well known that soil sealing strongly affects seedling emergence. The effect of soil sealing on the emergence of flax and turnip seedlings was studied in the laboratory. Seeds were sown in pots, watered, then covered with loamy soil and water was added. Three different doses of water were tested. Soil sealing was obtained with a paste of soil mixed with distilled water, added to each pot as a thick homogeneous, continuous and isotropic layer. The initial water content of the seal was measu...
