Studies on the characteristic of grain filling in broomcorn millet



Studies on the characteristic of grain filling in broomcorn millet



Acta Agronomica Sinica 15(4): 335-341



In this paper, the general process of grain filling in broomcorn millet (Panicum miliaceum) was described. And it showed that the rate of grain filling is conspicuously higher in varieties with heavy grain than in those with light grain, but the differences of filling duration are not significant. The filling rate changes easily with variations of temperature. When a variety grew under different temperatures, a complementary interaction could be observed between the rate and duration of filling, resulting in the grain weights at similar levels. Differences in panicle weight are associated with differences in rate rather than in duration of weight increasing. Whatever the panicle weight might be, a broomcorn millet variety has a definte 1000- grain weight, and so grain number per panicle is a decisive factor constituting grain weight per panicle.
