Genetic dissection of the temperature dependent emergence processes in sorghum using a cumulative emergence model and stability parameters

Among the major limitations for cultivating biomass sorghum in temperate regions is low temperature in spring that results in low and non-uniform emergence. The adaptation of sorghum to tropical and subtropical highlands gives hint of genetic variation in cold tolerance during emergence. The objective of the present study was to detect marker–trait associations for parameters describing the emergence process under different temperature regimes.
