Performance of Grain Sorghum Hybrids in Louisiana 2008

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 performance data for commercial grain sorghum hybrids submitted for evaluation by private agencies. Results from these trials are used by the LCES for recommending hybrids.

The cooperating LAES units in 2008 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 Macon Ridge Research Station, Winnsboro.
