Sorghum's Grain Number Tripled by Simple Genetic Change

Credit: CSHL Evidence of the team’s success: the left image shows a “terminal spike” with several sessile spikelets (round) which contain seeds, and several pedicillate spikelets (white arrows), narrow oblong compartments which don’t “fill” with seeds and don’t form grains. In a genetic variant (right) all the spikelets are sessile and contain grains.
