Interaction of Temperature and Solar Radiation Effect Sorghum Growth Under Drip Irrigated Saline Water

Bouya Ahmed Ould Ahmed, Tahei Yamamoto and Mitsuhiro Inoue    

Abstract: We investigated the impact of the interaction of temperature and solar radiation on the sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) growth during three years continuously 2004, 2005 and 2006. Sorghum was grown in dune sand in a plastic greenhouse. The saline irrigation water was 7.32 dS m-1 and control treatment was irrigated by good quality water (0.11 dS m-1). The time series statistical parameters; mean, median, CV and the 80th percentile values (PC80), assessed to discriminate the temporal sensitivity of the temperature and solar radiation indicated that CV followed by PC80 are better than median and mean. Sorghum growth and grain yield depended on the interaction between temperature and solar radiation under saline condition rather than individual effect.
