Description

Among 158 sorghum lines that were tested in Pennsylvania for resistance to the fungal disease anthracnose leaf blight, ICRISAT lines, specifically ICSB94, showed the highest level of resistance in the field. These lines are expected to be useful in breeding sorghum for north-eastern United States.With sorghum poised to become an important crop grown by Pennsylvania farmers, Penn State researchers, in a new study, tested more than 150 germplasm lines of the plant for resistance to a fungus likely to hamper its production.
