Abstract
Seed soaking and foliar spray as a means of enhancing water use efficiency and grain yield of wheat when water is limiting were compared both in the field and in the laboratory. Chloro choline chloride was used both for soaking and for spraying; two wheat cultivars, namely 3306 and Sonora 64, were the test crops. Seed soaking and foliar spray increased root growth, water potential, water use efficiency, harvest index and grain yield in both cultivars. Seed soaking increased stomatal resistance in C306 but not in Sonora 64.
