    Grain sorghum did not become an important crop until about years ago, and by that time farmers had already selected temperately adapted strains that were short enough to be harvested conveniently by hand. Farm women will attend the rouging operations in an effective way. The crop is long-rooted and can extract residual nitrogen left by previous crops, or from nitrogen-fixing soybeans preceding in rotation. Adding mesotrione or saflufenacil in herbicide combinations provide additional control of pigweeds Amaranthus sp. Plant breeding efforts continue to improve the cold tolerance of sorghum for growth in the Midwest.

    This unique sunflower system from DuPont and Pioneer is designed to maximize weed control in sunflower crops, enhancing ease of production and yield. Plant breeding has large fixed costs and long years and uncertain payoffs. Primary effects of drought stress are cellular dehydration and increase in hydraulic resistance. Then, female and male line seeds are to be sown with a ratio of which means that five rows of female line should be alternated with two rows of male. Because fungi cause the bulk of the diseases, three disease classes are discussed for this pathogen group. The latest hybrid sorghum varieties produce strong plants, unbeatable disease resistance, herbicide tolerance and, most importantly, mammoth yields similar to corn.
