In the present study, the application drought stress was severe enough to cause a tremendous reduction in grain yield (ton/ha) of the grain sorghum
genotypes used in this study (Table 2).
The investigators envision that black sorghum

As we examined several different sorghum
lines containing mini-chromosomes, we were pleased to see that the gene stacks behaved as expected," commented Otto Folkerts, Director of Transgenic Programs at Chromatin.
Air temperature changes in sorghum
growth duration at 2010 year were showed in Table 1.

Likewise, extrusion processing significantly altered the proteins' polymeric profile when sorghum
proteins were analyzed by size-exclusion chromatography.
There's a considerable amount of variability in sorghum

The goal of the sorghum
conversion program, Miller explains, is to convert tropical, photoperiod-sensitive sorghums
into plants that will flower and produce seed 50 to 75 days after planting - regardless of day length.
has published two new crop management guides that include the most current recommendations on the establishment, management and harvest of switchgrass and high-biomass sorghum
