Effect of 13 planting depths on germination and the emergence of field bindweed were investigated under greenhouse conditions. Results showed that field bindweed seeds emerged from up to 6 cm depth. The highest emergence occurred in the first, second, third and fourth week after emergence from 0.5, 0.5, 1.0 cm and 1.5, 1.5 and 1.5 cm planting depth, respectively. At the end of the fourth week, 6.5 cm depth treatment had zero emergences. Increasing burial depth resulted in induced secondary dormancy.
