Effect of Temperature, Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen Levels on Quackgrass Rhizome Buds

  • R. E. Meyer (a1) (a2) and K. P. Buchholtz (a1)

Abstract

Optimum temperature for bud activity and shoot growth of quackgrass (Agropyron repens (L.) Beauv.) occurred between 20 and 27 C. CO2 and O2 gas concentrations normally occurring in soil air were not found to affect bud activity and shoot growth appreciably.
