Abstract

Two kinds of experiments were conducted to elucidate the growth chz~racteristirso f millrts wilh different planting methods. that is, direct w~winga nd transplanting. (heexprrinienl involved !~~mdling emergence under dried wil conditions includi~iga germination text in a hypvrlonir msnit~a~~l i~~tion The other was a field trial on competition of n~illetsw ilh weeds. This study wns made from thr viewpoint of light tranwisvion in the plant community at the experimental farm of Gifu llniver~ily in 1981. The results obtained were as follows : 1 Velocity of the seedling emergence is the fastest with Italian millet t .%-funb ifulirr lkauv 1 under the lower mil moisture condition. and this result was coincident with that of the ~crmination test with the higher hypertonic manitol wlution. On the contrary. the slowest velocity ct~uldb e found in common millet (hsirnm milioccym L.1 . 2 ) With different depth of mil cover, velocity of the seedling emergence in the I cm depth which was subject to dry waa the slowest with common millet and sorghum (Soghum bicolor Muench) .At 3 cm depth. that of finger millet (Mmcom cana (;aenn.) k a m e s low because of its short plumule.....
