Abstract

Seedling growth from sowing to emergence of two crust tolerant and two susceptible sorghum genotypes is described. Tolerant genotypes had longer mesocotyls with faster growth rates than the susceptible genotypes. The mechanism involved in crust tolerance appears to be that of avoidance by fast growth.
