By Yared Assefa

Corn and grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor subsp. bicolor L) are one of the most sensible cereal plants worldwide, and either are key for worldwide nutrition safeguard. Similarities among the 2 plants, really their model for warm-season grain creation, pose a chance for comparisons to notify applicable cropping judgements. This publication presents a finished overview of the similarities and changes among corn and grain sorghum. It compares corn and sorghum plants in components similar to morphology, body structure, phenology, yield, source use and potency, and influence of either plants in several cropping structures.

Producers, researchers and extension brokers looking for trustworthy medical information will locate this in-depth comparability of plants with capability slot in dryland and irrigations cropping platforms rather valuable.

  • Presents quite a lot of issues of comparison
  • Offers vital insights for crop determination making

The analyses were completed using the PROC REG and PROC CORR procedures of SAS. 05) with both yield and years in dryland trial sites. , for the combined dryland data; yield was equated to N rate plus hybrid in the model statement, where hybrid was the independent variable and N rate was covariate. The resulting least-square means from this analysis were used to regress for the contribution of increasing nitrogen levels for yield increase. To determine whether the yield response in dryland sites was influenced by precipitation; prior planting and in season, or temperature changes, the total monthly precipitation data for November, December, January, February, March, and April, and both total monthly precipitation and mean monthly temperature data for May, June, July, August, and September were analyzed using the PROC CORR procedure of SAS.

2008) concluded that there was no upward or downward trend in temperature and precipitation for the years 1960 through 2006 at sensitive stages of corn development for Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa. Hu and Buyanovsky (2003) did not find a trend in precipitation and temperature for years 1895 through 1998 for Missouri nor did Assefa and Staggenborg (2010) for the years 1957 through 2008 in Kansas for sorghum growing seasons. Almost all available corn and grain sorghum yield trend analysis reports are based on USDA data, which are collected through field observation and survey.

2000). 3). 06 kg ha21 yr21 in dryland and irrigated trials, respectively. The change in fertilizer application over the years was different from one district to another. When management factors are evaluated independently, a significant correlation emerged between dryland yields with each of the factors. 4). Similarly, in irrigated trials, all management factors except harvest date were related to yield increases. 4. 05. 05. 3). Harvest dates also varied, but changes in harvest dates were not smooth.
