Herbicide-resistant grain sorghum

Over-the-top herbicide technology trials for herbicide-resistant sorghum will be demonstrated in grower field days sponsored by the United Sorghum Checkoff Program.

The trials are intended to test how the new technology will perform in various climates and conditions.

“Field trials are meant to expose producers to new technology,” sorghum producer Bill Kubeka said. “This new technology will allow sorghum to be a more competitive crop.”

Field trials are scheduled for Oklahoma, Kansas, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Louisiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico and Tennessee.

The new technology, which is being developed by DuPont, will allow producers weed control and flexibility in crop rotations. Growers could potentially expect to see this new technology available for limited release by 2012.
