Level of acid soil field stress for sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) tolerance development: comparison among locations



Level of acid soil field stress for sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) tolerance development: comparison among locations



Plant nutrition physiology and applications Proceedings of the Eleventh International Plant Nutrition Colloquium, Wageningen, Netherlands, 30 July 4 August 1989: 425-428



A 2-phase, sequential breeding programme in the Southeastern USA is described which led to the development of acid soil tolerant germplasm (GPP4BR, PI531231) containing source parental lines suitable for hybrid development programmes in tropical and subtropical environments. The first phase involved selection for Mn toxicity tolerance at soil pH-H2O 4.5-4.8 (pH-KCl 4.0-4.3) and 20% Al saturation of the soil cation exchange capacity.
