DST-SERB (N-PDF): Plant architecture suitable for very high planting densities to enhance sorghum grain and fodder yield (2017-19)

Over the last century, maize planting densities have increased from about 3 to 9 plants m-2. No such increase in the planting density has taken place in sorghum, at least in the last 40-50 years. This project involves an increase in planting density of sorghum which could lead towards the improvement of their productivity. Sowing … Continue reading DST-SERB (N-PDF): Plant architecture suitable for very high planting densities to enhance sorghum grain and fodder yield (2017-19)
