Clark, L. J. and Barraclough, P. B. 1999. Do dicotyledons generate greater maximum axial root growth pressures than monocotyledons? Journal of Experimental Botany. 50 (336), pp. 1263-1266.

Roots of dicotyledons (dicots) have often been observed to grow better in strong soil than monocotyledons (monocots), and it has been suggested that this could be due to the dicots generating greater root growth pressures. Experiments were therefore carried out to measure the maximum axial root growth pressure (σmax) in seedlings of monocots and dicots. Dicots did not generate greater σmax than monocots: the mean for dicots was 0.41 MPa; the mean for monocots was 0.44 MPa.
