Anecdotal evidence suggests that some NSW growers and advisers are much more conservative when determining the timing of desiccation... The project was designed to generate information on the impact of different sorghum desiccation timings and to identify the criteria for further examination in more detailed work... There was a strong relationship between grain moisture at desiccation and final grain yield at Wandobah (Figure 3)...

Survival of rhizobia on seed is generally poor and desiccation is a major factor affecting cell viability... A review of current literature reveals that rhizobia has some inherent mechanisms for desiccation tolerance... Survival of rhizobia after growth in broth cultures was compared with that of cells extracted from peat...

4. Desiccate late season weeds Desiccating the crop too early can result in greater lodging particularly if harvest is then delayed, and may impact on both grain yield and quality... Sorghum growers and advisers in Qld have appeared more comfortable with optimal timing of sorghum spray-out, largely based on grain black layer (abscission zone) development... There was no impact on yield or grain quality from any timing...
