Abstract
With appropriate cultural practices there are relatively minor problems in establishing a uniform stand of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.) seedlings in the humid tropics. With soyabean (Glycine max (L.) Merrill.), however, emergence and establishment of seedlings is haphazard and, frequently, poor [21]. If the non-emergent soyabean seeds are excavated they appear to have germinated (i.e. the radicle has emerged) but the hypocotyl’s have not elongated. The seedlings usually become infected by pathogenic fungi and! Or bacteria and are eventually killed [22].
