Synopsis

Synopsis

Irrigated grain sorghum grown in 12- or 20-inch rows produced significantly higher grain yields and produced more grain per inch of water used than in 30- or 40-inch rows. This was attributed to a more uniform spacing of plants which resulted in more efficient use of moisture, nutrients, and solar energy.
