Sorghum; Germination; Threshing; Plants--Effect of fungicides on
Germination of sorghum seed did not appear to be affected by spraying the plants with Maneb or with a chemical defoliant before harvest. Mechanical threshing greatly reduced germination of most but not all lots; this injury is thought to be related to the maturity and/ or moisture content of the seed when threshed, although other varietal differences may be important. At any given time there were large differences in moisture content between seeds of different hybrids, different plants of any one hybrid, and between different parts of the same panicle.
