Variability in the rate of development of cultivated sorghum Moench and relationship with photoperiod sensitivity

Variability in the rate of development of cultivated sorghum Moench and relationship with photoperiod sensitivity

Cahiers Agricultures: 2, 101-106

The rate of development of highly photoperiodic and consequently late sorghums adapted to the West-African savannas is reduced during the phases of jointing and panicle development. Slow development, expressed by a long phyllochron or time between the appearances of two successive leaves, is related to the limited size of the panicles of late sorghums. Therefore, variation for phyllochron during plant development could be a way of increasing the potential grain yield of this type of sorghum.
