ABSTRACT
The article reports on the development of the research concerning the herbicide resistant sorghum. It states that the research is funded by the United Sorghum Checkoff Program to demonstrate new over-the-top solutions for grass control to permit sorghum growers better management opportunities and flexibility in crop rotations. The Kansas State University is presently conducting the research on the production of different sorghum that are tolerant to many common herbicides used on other crops.
