The aim of this book is to serve as a guide in problem identification and basic descriptive analyses, with working examples of breeding theory applied in the field. A systematic breeding approach for sorghum is recommended. Five general topics are covered: (1) basic uses, characteristics and distribution of sorghum; (2) growth stages and morphology; (3) genetics; (4) sorghum improvement methods Cited by: Sorghum is predominantly self-pollinated crop, in which cross-pollination ranges from 5% to 15% with an average of about 6%. Thus, breeding procedures applicable to both self- and cross-pollinated crops can be deployed to sorghum improvement. Defining breeding goals is Cited by: 1.
