Description

Investing in sorghum breeding is key to achieving Food, Nutrition, Fodder and Biofuel security in dryland regions under changing climate scenarios. Sorghum is a hardy dryland crop that can survive harsh climate and poor soils. Investments in sorghum breeding programs will be accelerated by increasing national forage demand and biofuel policy prospects in developing countries.
