Investigations into the ability of a plant to grow and/or resist damage at sub-optimal temperatures fall into two general classifications. The first includes that range of cool temperatures above the freezing point of water in the plant tissue. The second category deals with temperatures below that point. This investigation involves only suboptimal temperatures above the freezing point. The purpose of this investigation is to study various screening and selection techniques designed to evaluate cool tolerant characters in available sorghum germplasm.
