Seed number usually correlates positively with cereal grain yields.Enviromental stresses at the time spikelet components are differentiated in sorghum seriously reduce grain number and yield.Competition for assimilates between simultaneously expanding floral and vegetative parts at this time may put a strain on development of spikelet differentiation and expansion, and suppressing vegetative expansion, A second area meriting research relates to delaying appears to have merit. in grain in order to leng#en the grain filling period and increase senescence total assimilate supply for grain production.
