For dry sowing, the maximum allowable rainfall was estimated at about 5 mm for sandy, 8 mm for loamy and 10 mm for clayey textured soils, failing which a day or two after the rain (depending evaporation rate) should be allowed before dry seeding... We used two years data, a literature review and common knowledge on soil-plant water relations to estimate the maximum allowable and minimum required rainfall in order to successfully avail a dry or a wet sowing opportunity, respectively... Seedling mortality per day was calculated as percentage of the maximum emerged counts...

Access to at least 60cm of subsoil moisture is a must if farmers are considering planting mung beans as a break crop this summer... "Their ability to fit into a short period of growing time is legendary," he said... Mr McIntosh urged farmers to do their research before planting, ensuring they have stored sub-soil moisture, and checking whether their soils have any constraints such as sodium or chloride, or any hard pans that may restrict root development...

Grain yields can be increased through greater transpiration efficiency (TE), a measure of the efficiency with which water is exchanged for carbon dioxide during photosynthesis... Oil composition can be compromised and lead to a change in fatty acid profiles if the seed is harvested when too moist, the seed has been excessively thrashed, admixture / moisture and disease levels are too high or the temperatures in your silo reach 35 C plus for more than 3 or 4 days in a row... For the reasons above, we need a cropping/pasture rotation..
