It is appropriate that the technical sessions of the Sorghum in the Eighties Symposium should start with the physical environment because it is the medium in which the biological material expresses itself. The "properties" of the medium such as radiation, rainfall, temperature, and soils control the rate of the biological processes such as nutrient uptake, photosynthesis, respiration, dry matter accumulation, etc. An understanding of the interactions between the properties and processes should lead us to develop principles for improved productivity of the sorghum crop.
