A major challenge for crop research in the 21st century is how to predict crop performance as a function of genetic architecture. Advances in " next generation " DNA sequencing have greatly improved genotyping efficiency and reduced genotyping costs. Methods for characterizing plant traits (phenotypes), however, have much progressed more slowly over the(More)
Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO 2) likely will affect future water requirements of most plants, including agricultural crops. This research quantifies such effects on the energy balance and evapotranspiration (ET) of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Möench, a C 4 grain crop) using a residual energy balance approach. During the summer and autumn of(More)
