Note on the effect of soil-moisture stress at different stages of growth on HCN content of 'MP Chari' sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)



Note on the effect of soil-moisture stress at different stages of growth on HCN content of 'MP Chari' sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 43(10): 977-979



In a field trial, sorghum MP Chari was subjected to various moisture regimes from Apr. until June. Moisture stress during the establishment stage tended to increase the herbage HCN content, thereby increasing the risk of HCN poisoning. In all treatments HCN content decreased with time. Sub-optimal supply of moisture at the elongation stage also resulted in a reduction in DM yield.
