Abstract

Excavation at biweekly intervals for 20 weeks of nutsedge clones grown from single tubers indicated that no dormant tubers formed until 6 weeks after foliar emergence. Tuber chains or fully mature rhizomes were not observed until the tenth week or long tuber chains until the eighteenth week. Rhizome length and tuber-basal bulb number increased throughout the season. Development of clones varied.
