Relationship between grain development stage and sorghum cultivar susceptibility to grain mould



Relationship between grain development stage and sorghum cultivar susceptibility to grain mould



African Plant Protection 10(1): 53-62



Five sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) cultivars were evaluated in field trials in Ethiopia to determine the grain development stage(s) most susceptible to mould pathogens. Four growth stages (anthesis, milk, dough and physiological maturity) were compared. Damage to grains and the incidence of fungi were significantly affected by cultivar x growth stage interactions.
