Before attempting to address this subject it is important to define what is understood by temperature stress. It is a complex subject which has recently been reviewed in three books (Lyons et al. 1979; Levitt 1980; Turner and Kramer 1980) therefore definitions and details of the physiological and biochemical processes associated with temperature stress will not be given here. In brief, however, a quantitative definition of temperature stress in sorghum, as in any crop, is difficult to provide since it will depend on a number of factors :ich will include the duration of exposure of either high or low temperature, the activity or stage of growth of the exposed tissue and finally the thermal adaptation of the particular sorghum cultivar.
