The effect of different levels of soil moisture (A, B, C and D; 50, 100, 150 and 200% of field capacity, respectively) on the seed germination and seedling growth of P. americanum [P. glaucum] cultivars Tiflate Synthate (TS) and IC-8206 was investigated during 2001 in Pakistan. The seed germination of TS was faster in treatments B and C compared to A and D. IC-8206 showed faster germination in treatment B than in other treatments. Seedling growth was low under drought (treatment A) and under waterlogged conditions (treatment D). Both cultivars were intermediate in drought tolerance but sensitive to waterlogging.
