Sorghum was included in the NVT program for the first time in 2017-18 in response to grower requests for independent variety performance data to underpin informed choices around the most appropriate hybrid grain sorghum
varieties to plant in their paddocks.
Our previous research with rain-fed grain sorghum
(Sorghum bicolor L.) and sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) grown on subtropical Vertosols highlighted that the initial weeks after N fertiliser application (at planting) were the critical period for [N.sub.2]O loss throughout the whole year after N application (Schwenke and Haigh 2016).
Moench) as grain sorghum
. Although several sweet sorghum breeding programs have been initiated in United States, most of the varieties in cultivation were developed at the U.S.
The treatments consisted of six grain sorghum
varieties (1011-IPA, 2502-IPA, 2564-IPA, 2600-IPA, Ponta Negra, and Qualimax), and five salinity levels of the irrigation water ([EC.sub.w] = 0, 1.5, 3.0, 6.0, and 12.0 dS [m.sup.-1]).
Stewart and his family grow wheat and grain sorghum

a cereal grain often used as a substitute for corn and feed in the animal industry is highly drought-tolerant and is efficient in its nutrient use, making it a sustainable crop option for farmers that lowers their seed cost and increases their profitability, the news release said.
S&W accessed elite grain sorghum
germplasm from around the world to develop and bring to market varieties of superior field performance with key attributes such as high yield, tolerances to extreme weather conditions (such as drought), insect and disease resistance, grain quality and harvestability.
SeedVision plans to leverage AGT Foods Africa's production and processing facilities to produce S&W's hybrid sunflower, grain sorghum

The first purchaser as grain sorghum
enters the market is to collect 1.6% of the crop's net value and 0.35% for forage sorghum.
To help maintain or increase production of the tropical grain while reducing its environmental impact and accommodating climate change, crop and food scientists examine sorghum utilization from the perspectives of the structure and chemistry of sorghum grain; the domestication, spread, and uses of sorghum as a crop; the growth , development, and physiology of grain sorghum
; sorghum as a food grain; and sorghum as a forage and energy crop.
