Compound spike is known as the spike of spikelets. The grass inflorescence is the primary food source for humanity, and has been repeatedly shaped by human selection during the domestication of different cereal crops. When the flower first opens it is in the female phase and the stigma is receptive to pollen. Plant materials: Among several sorghum lines tested for tissue culture ability and Agrobacterium infection response, P898012 was selected for transformation. CSH 1 was released as first dwarf sorghum hybrid in 1964 28. Individual flower units are called Spikelets; The central axis of the inflorescence is called a rachis Compound umbel: It is a branched umbel. d. Catkin: Pendulous spikes with a long and drooping axis bearing small unisexual or bisexual flowers. All flowers appear at the same level to form convex or flat topped racemose pattern of main axis. Ray floret or ligulate floret. The main axis of the inflorescence together with the latest axes, if present, is termed as the peduncle. In sorghum, the inflorescence, also known as panicle, consists of a main rachis on which many primary branches develop. Theor Appl Genet (in press), Vollbrecht E, Springer PS, Goh L, Buckler ES, Martienssen RA (2005) Architecture of floral branch systems in maize and related grasses. To better understand grass inflorescence architecture, geneticists study mutants. The genus Sorghum consists of 24 diverse species. To study the inheritance of inflorescence architecture in sorghum, 119 recombinant inbred lines from an elite by exotic cross were grown in three environments and measured for 15 traits, including primary, secondary, and tertiary inflorescence branching.
