LUBBOCK – Plant science researchers at Texas Tech University are narrowing the gap between sorghum that dies prematurely due to heat and moisture stress and lines of the crop that seem to display “stay-green” characteristics allowing plants to mature normally in high-heat areas, and creating higher yield for producers.
The above story is based on materials provided by Texas Tech University. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
