Evaluate grain sorghum hybrids for Californian feed

Principal Investigator: Jeffery Dahlberg, UC ANR KARE, 559-646-6060, jadahlberg@ucanr.edu

The objectives of this project were: Conduct multi-environment trials of grain sorghum varieties to obtain reliable estimates of genotypic performance of these varieties in California; use field trial data to conduct an analysis of genotype-by-environment interaction effects; and use field trial data to facilitate on-going crop simulation modeling efforts.

California small grain variety selection trial

Principal Investigator:Mark Lundy, UC ANR Specialist, 530-902-7295, melundy@ucdavis.edu

The overall objective of the research was to provide objective productivity information for new and existing small grain cultivars to growers in various regions of California as well as to public and private breeding programs.
