In field trials with 5 sorghum genotypes, CSH-1 and Swarna withstood transplanting better than the others. They gave higher grain yields in association with higher mean dry weight/ear, grain weight/ear and 1000-grain weight. They also showed better growth in terms of DM accumulation and distribution in the ear, larger leaf area and leaf-area duration and higher rates of DM production at the seedling and grain-filling stages. CBE-X, which generally gives high yields, was adversely affected by transplanting
