It is a pretty basic concept and it is important that the germination is used to mean germination... in most soils once germination has occurred one would turn the water off for several days if the weather was not dessicating the surface of the soil... daily watering after germination is too likely to cause the roots hang around at the surface and be vulnerable to drying out later... ungerminated seed is not going to care about daily watering... ungerminated seed may very well wait till Spring if need be and will not die in the meantime becuz the lack of daily watering...

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
