Experiments were conducted to determine the influence of date of planting and solar radiatiou on yield of sweet sorghum stalks and sugar. Radiation received by the plants during the period between boot and early seed formation accounted for about 75% of the variation in yield. Maximum solar radiation in south Texas occurs during June, July, and August, consequently maximum yields were obtained from April, May, and June plantings.
