Performance of grain sorghum hybrids is annually evaluated by Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station (LAES) researchers. The purpose of these trials is to provide to Louisiana growers, seedsmen, County Agents of the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service (LCES), and other interested individuals and organizations with unbiased results on performance of commercial grain sorghum hybrids submitted for evaluation by private agencies. The data generated in these trials are used by the LCES for recommending hybrids.
The cooperating LAES units in 2004 were: Dean Lee Research Station, Alexandria; Central Research Station, Baton Rouge; Red River Research Station, Bossier City; Rice Research Station, Crowley; Northeast Research Station, St. Joseph; and Northeast Research Station-Macon Ridge Branch, Winnsboro. Trials at the Dean Lee Research Station in Alexandria and Red River Research Station in Bossier City were dropped due to excessive rainfall in May and June and high variability among plot data.
