In a comparison of 159 sorghum varieties from Europe, the USA and China, considerable differences in growth were found, no variety produced ripe seeds in 1962 and the sugar varieties developed too slowly to attain a satisfactory sugar content. However, the varieties with dry stem marrow had a relatively low heat requirement and rapid early development, and could be grown for fodder.
