  • Results showed that Ethanol 2 cultivar exhibited a higher growth rate, plant height, stem diameter, grain yield, stem fresh weight, and yield, juice extract yield, and sugar content than those exhibited by KKU 40 and Cowley. (
  • Application of ethephon at the heading stage gave the lowest stem diameter, grain yield, stem fresh weight, and yield, whereas applying it at the harvesting stage gave the highest sugar yield. (
  • Sorghum, one of the world's most important sources of food, animal feed, and biofuel, is considered a model crop for research because it has a high tolerance to drought, heat, and high-salt conditions. (
  • Assefa Y, Staggenborg S, Prasad V (2010) Grain sorghum water requirement and responses to drought stress: crop management. (
  • Ceres Inc. recently announced favorable results from its biotech corn evaluations in China, where a second year of field trials demonstrated significant yield advantages under normal and drought conditions. (
  • Sorghum is drought tolerant, is an important crop for farmers worldwide and increasing production is considered a key to addressing the threat of food shortages in the years ahead with changing climates, growing populations overseas and the loss of arable land in many parts of the world. (
  • The newly released varieties can help overcome periods of drought especially terminal drought problems prevalent in the Nigerian (Sudan and Sahel) ecologies because they are early maturing, with 50% flowering in 67 days against the 90 days on average of other varieties," said Dr. Ignatius Angarawai, a Scientist - Sorghum Breeding at ICRISAT Kano. (
  • This crop is easily established, tolerant to drought, has low water needs, efficiently uses nutrients, has high dry matter harvest yields, is digestible for livestock, and is economical to produce. (
  • It is very drought tolerant, has high seedling vigor, and some varieties have reduced lignin content (such as the brown midrib sorghum x sudangrass crosses) to increase digestibility for animals and decomposition rate. (
  • Scientists at Aarhus University have discovered that fungi associated with plant roots may improve growth and yield of drought-stressed wheat. (
  • This is a serious problem as the predicted increase in frequency of extreme climate episodes will lead to multiple drought conditions during crop growth which in turn will reduce the yield of wheat, one of the world's most important foods. (
  • Recent research from Aarhus University demonstrates that the fungi can improve growth and yield in some wheat varieties under drought stress. (
  • Farmers in climates where late-season drought occurs frequently may be able to increase wheat yield, according to research from The University of Western Australia. (
  • Sorghum has outstanding resistance against drought conditions. (
  • The present study aims to identify QTL influencing agronomic traits and yield components under well-watered and pre-flowering drought stress conditions. (
  • Six promising QTL regions with seven QTL for yield and agronomic traits especially related to pre-flowering drought tolerance were identified on chromosomes SBI-01, SBI-03, SBI-04, SBI-05 and SBI-07. (
  • Near-isogenic sorghum lines (cv RTx7000) were characterized in a series of field and managed-environment trials (seven experiments and 14 environments) to determine the influence of four individual stay-green (Stg1-4) quantitative trait loci (QTLs) on canopy development, water use and grain yield under post-anthesis drought. (
  • These results establish a link between the role of the Stg QTL in modifying canopy development and the subsequent impact on crop water use patterns and grain yield under terminal drought. (
  • Sorghum is particularly adapted to drought. (
  • The new, higher-yielding strains of sorghum developed at Texas A&M use less water than conventional sorghum (making them more drought-resistant) and are sterile (not flowering prevents the escape of energy). (
  • Sorghum is a C 4 crop and its yield levels are highly affected by terminal drought stress under rainfed conditions. (
  • At molecular level, several QTL's governing pre- and post flowering drought tolerance have been identified in cereals and specifically in sorghum. (
  • In this review, detailed mechanisms and breeding approaches related to drought stress in cereals and specifically in sorghum are discussed. (

  • Characteristics of study were yield, yield component and the contribution of stem reserves to corn grain yield. (
  • The results showed that with increasing sorghum density and interference, corn yield components (except the number of grain rows) were decreased, due to shading and competition between plants for using available resources. (
