Registration of GTPP7R(H)C5 white seeded, tan plant, and foliar disease resistant sorghum germplasm population.
This Sorghum bicolor population (PI533653) was released in 1989 and was developed from TP24R. TP24R was subjected to random mating and half-sib selection for general foliar disease resistance and white seed quality characteristics. Selection for foliar disease resistance was primarily concerned with Colletotrichum graminicola, Cercospora sorghi, Ascochyta sorghina, Gloeocercospora sorghi and Exserohilum turcicum [Setosphaeria turcica]. Additional selected characters included height, tan plant colour and resistance to the grain mould complex.
