Corn and sorghum are staple forage crops in Florida. Innovative agriculture depends on science and technology to explain biological and ecological phenomena such as field plants' emergence. This research study was conducted in Florida in 2017 using two electronic thermometers (HOBO UA-001-64, and HOBO H08-032-08). One measuring the soil temperature and the other the air temperature, respectively in the location of the experiment. An analysis of the means, normality, and a comparison of the means of the two devices were performed using statistical analyzes (t, and F analyses) to know the most accurate description of emergence according to scientific literature. A soil readout thermometer (HOBO UA-001-64) appears closest and realistic to describe the emergence of corn and sorghum in Florida.
