Grain sorghum acreage expanded in most of the traditional grain sorghum producing counties in Phillips, Lee, Crittenden, Mississippi and St. Francis counties saw their grain sorghum acreage increase between 72 and percent as compared to the season. The mentioned counties are also the largest producing ones, with Phillips rankingFile Size: KB. The major focus of the grain sorghum research in the semi-arid regions of Kansas is to increase hybrid grain yield potential through the development of elite parental lines and hybrids with pre- and post-flowering drought, heat and cold tolerance, non-lodging and disease (Fusarium stalk rot, charcoal rot and grain mold) and pest (sugarcane aphids) resistance by integrating classical and.

The aim of this book is to serve as a guide in problem identification and basic descriptive analyses, with working examples of breeding theory applied in the field.
A systematic breeding approach for sorghum is recommended. Five general topics are covered: (1) basic uses, characteristics and distribution of sorghum; (2) guide to sorghum breeding book stages and morphology; (3) genetics; (4) sorghum improvement methods Cited by: Sorghum is predominantly self-pollinated crop, in which cross-pollination ranges from 5% to 15% with an average of about 6%.
Thus, breeding procedures applicable to both self- and cross-pollinated crops can be deployed to sorghum improvement. Defining breeding goals is Cited by: 1. Buy Guide to Sorghum Breeding on FREE SHIPPING on qualified orders Guide to Sorghum Breeding: Leland R.
