Stay-green is a complex phenotype determined by a number of underlying mechanisms, including in sorghum, for example: Smaller canopy size at flowering Reduced water use prior to flowering Greater post-flowering soil moisture extraction Greater nitrogen uptake during grain filling Greater specific leaf nitrogen content.. We need to phenotype for both stay-green and root traits to get the most favourable phenotype Stay-green can now be readily phenotyped in field trials using our newly developed method.. Any comparisons of days from sowing to anthesis may be affected...
