Researchers from the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI), including the University of Queensland and CSIRO, have identified heat-tolerant sorghum lines that commercial breeders can use to develop new hybrids in the next five to 10 years... "The implications of this heat tolerance are that growers should be able to improve yield and reduce risk through the selection of suitable sorghum hybrids," Professor Hammer says... "Planting in early to mid-October increases the risk that high temperatures - experienced throughout late December and early January - could coincide with the emergence and flowering of the seed head," Professor Hammer says...

Heat tolerant sorghum to boost production in the north.. "Planting at this time increases the risk that high temperatures will coincide with the emergence and flowering of the seed head-a time when the crop is most susceptible," Professor Hammer says... Dr Scott Chapman, a senior researcher from CSIRO who presented the heat-tolerance research findings at the GRDC Updates earlier this year, says the key message to growers is that genetic variation for heat tolerance around flowering has been found...
