But the over-the-top application had a better distribution of material between the top and bottom half of the plant, Bynum said. However, using the system that could adjust both volume and rate of spread by moving the nozzle through the plant, they determined the lower volume of water got more chemical on both the top and bottom half of the.

    Applications for Section 18s are pending in additional cotton and sorghum producing states. Transform has shown excellent control of tarnished plant bug, a perennially troublesome cotton pest. Louisiana crop consultant Hank Jones, with RHJ Ag Services, LLC, said the Section 18 emergency use exemptions are crucial for growers. This study focused on sweet sorghum, a crop that produces relatively high quantities of easy to process, directly fermentable aqueous sugar. Sweet sorghum is desirable because of the reduced steps.

() reported much diversity among sweet sorghum genotypes with ranges in India of 13 to 24% for Brix (a measure of sugar and soluble starch in plant sap based on light refraction; a typical Brix measure for sweet sorghum sap Cited by: Loss of plant sap from the sugarcane aphid feeding on sorghum leaves takes away nutrients from the plant that could otherwise be utilized for plant health and grain yield.

Plant stress caused by the sugarcane aphids can also lead to uneven and lack of head emergence, poor grain set and will likely contribute to an increase in lodging.

The following remarks concerning Sugar Making were prepared origin- ally for our Sugar Hand Book, and relate specially to the tropical (ribbon) cane, but will apply equally well to sorghum.
