Persistence of limited-transpiration-rate trait in sorghum at high temperature

ENVIRONMENTAL AND EXPERIMENTAL BOTANY, 115, 58–62.

By: M. Riar n, T. Sinclair n & P. Prasad*

author keywords: High temperature; Limited transpiration trait; Silver inhibitor; Sorghum; Vapor pressure deficit
TL;DR: For environments where temperature may commonly reach or exceed 37 °C, sorghum genotypes have been favored that acclimate to the high temperature by losing the TR lim trait, indicating that in conditions in which very high temperatures threaten crop heat stress, those genotypes that lose the TRLim trait at high temperature may be more desirable.
