Corn and Grain Sorghum Comparison by Yared Assefa

By Yared Assefa

Corn and grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor subsp. bicolor L) are one of the most sensible cereal plants all over the world, and either are key for worldwide foodstuff defense. Similarities among the 2 vegetation, fairly their variation for warm-season grain construction, pose a chance for comparisons to notify applicable cropping judgements. This ebook offers a entire assessment of the similarities and alterations among corn and grain sorghum. It compares corn and sorghum plants in components akin to morphology, body structure, phenology, yield, source use and potency, and impression of either vegetation in several cropping platforms.

Producers, researchers and extension brokers looking for trustworthy clinical information will locate this in-depth comparability of vegetation with capability slot in dryland and irrigations cropping platforms fairly valuable.

  • Presents a variety of issues of comparison
  • Offers vital insights for crop choice making

Measurements of Phosphor Properties

Measuring the homes of phosphors is an important step in constructing and choosing phosphors for particular functions. together with chapters drawn from the second one version of the best-selling instruction manual of Phosphors, Measurements of Phosphor homes outlines a number of tools for characterizing and measuring the optical and luminescence homes of phosphors.

Crop Wild Relative Conservation and Use (Cabi Publishing)

Crop wild kinfolk (CWR) are species heavily relating to crop crops that may give a contribution precious characteristics, akin to pest or disorder resistance and yield development. those species are severe for making improvements to agricultural construction and lengthening nutrition defense. also they are crucial elements of traditional and semi-natural habitats in addition to agricultural platforms, and are for that reason very important in holding atmosphere health and wellbeing.

Ecological Monitoring of Genetically Modified Crops: A Workshop Summary

Proponents of agricultural biotechnology think that genetically changed (GM) vegetation have the capability to supply nice ecological merits, comparable to lowered pesticide and land use, in addition to agricultural merits. despite the fact that, given the swift emergence of business GM vegetation and the most likely elevate of their use, many teams have raised matters concerning the power unintentional, adversarial ecological results of those vegetation.

Agronomy and economy of black pepper and cardamom

Referred to as the "King" of spices, black pepper (Piper nigrum L. ) and the "Queen" of spices, cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum M. ), either perennial vegetation of the tropics, are an important and most generally wanted spice plants of the area. They either have many makes use of, for instance, either are used as flavourings and as a drugs.

For example, Tannura et al. (2008) concluded no upward or downward trend in temperature and precipitation at sensitive stages of corn development for Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa. Likewise, no trend was detected for precipitation and temperature from 1895 to 1998 for Missouri (Hu and Buyanovsky, 2003), and Assefa and Staggenborg (2010) reported no significant weather change (temperature and precipitation) in sorghum growing seasons in different areas of Kansas for the past 50 years. 4 Genetic Factors that Contribute to Yield Changes Besides management and climate, hybrids have changed significantly from 1939 to 2009.

CHAPTER 5 Yield Distribution and Functions for Corn and Grain Sorghum Grain yield is among the top factors that influence producers’ selection of crops. A number of statistical models have been developed to describe crop yield in relation to environmental and technological factors. The majority of statistical crop models developed before the late 1950s relate crop yield with climatic conditions alone (Compton, 1943; Mathews and Brown, 1938; Sanderson, 1954). , 2004; Lobell and Asner, 2003). , 2008; Thompson, 1969).

2012), which used data from Kansas Corn Performance Trials. Therefore, if yield were the only measure, irrigated corn is the most productive. Comparisons of dryland corn and sorghum yields indicate that dryland corn yields have been superior in the eastern part of Kansas in recent decades. , 2012). In central and western Kansas, dryland corn and sorghum yields did not show a significant difference in most years. The higher CV noted for dryland corn indicates that it is less stable than dryland sorghum in these environments.
