SP FAQ - Germination and emergence

Q.
Does it follow then, that so long as seeds can get an adequate supply of liquid water there will be no differences between the various no-tillage slots?

Q.
If seeds can germinate in a no-tillage slot, why would they not also be able to emerge?

Q.
Why do some sub-surface seedlings live while others die in no-tillage?

Q.
How long can sub-surface seedlings survive in an inverted 'T' shaped slot before emerging?

Q.
Is there a limit to the dryness of the soil from which seeds sown by Cross Slot no-tillage will fail to emerge?

Q.
Does that mean then that untilled soils have more potential to stimulate germination and seedling emergence than they have to sustain plant growth?

Q.
Is there therefore a danger that Cross Slot openers will force germination from soils that are too dry for the plants to grow in?
