- ... The nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) of high biomass energy sorghum hybrid plants increased during 180 days of growth to a maximum of 370 g DW g−1 N−1. Shoot N uptake was biphasic and continued for 120 days. Leaf N accumulation was rapid until day 60. Specific leaf nitrogen (SLN) varied from 0.9 to 1.7 g N m−2 green leaf area, a typical range for C4 grass canopies. Stem N increased to a maximum at da ...
