Alternate generations of female choice and selfed plant mass selection may be applied to sorghum composites. Selection of steriles for agronomic characters and yield alternates with intense selection of fertiles for yield. Cains are greater and seed set problems fewer. Composited collection entries using ms3 contribute to the breeding populations.
