Abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows: Maximum grain yields are attained only by uniform sorghum stands that allow uniform flowering and ripening. Inadequate stands resulting from low seeding or other causes produce secondary tillers from buds near the base of the plant; secondary tillers mature later than the main head, delaying harvest. Stands that are too heavy can result in lower yields, small kernels, and increased lodging.
