Management of ratooned grain sorghum in a dryland farming system


AIAS Occasional Publication ( 93): 327-332
Management of ratooned grain sorghum in a dryland farming system
Successful ratoons of row-cropped dryland sorghum were grown during drought conditions in frost-free areas on clay soils near Banana (25 degrees S, 150 degrees E) in central Queensland. Test areas were large (770 ha of Gunsynd, DK44 and S34 in 1991 and 260 ha of MR31 in 1994). It is suggested that success was the result of planning from the outset to have a ratoon crop. Herbicides were used to control weeds and volunteer sorghum seedlings without killing the primary plants.
