Abstract

Seeds of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) were sown in the greenhouse in a field soil prone to crusting, and at the same time a stable foam was generated and placed over the seed furrow in a 4 x 0.5 cm band. The foam withstood a simulated rain and offered little (0.03 MPa) mechanical resistance to seedling emergence. The percentage of seedling emergence was increased by the foam microenvironment. The foam strip remained over the seed furrow for 3 weeks and was not observed to be phytotoxic to seedling growth.
