Abstract
Studies have revealed the relative importance of carbohydrate supply and head storage capacity as possible determinants of grain yield in sorghum. Carbohydrate supply was reduced by two levels of defoliation (-!- and complete), and storage capacity was reduced by two levels of panicle clipping at anthesis (1/3 and 2/3 removed). Carbohydrate supply also was reduced by shading during grain filling, and increased by removing nearby plants to increase the light supply during grain filling.
