Sudan, a very large and arid country, has been affected by internal conflicts for a long time. Sorghum, pearl millet and groundnut are very important crops for Sudanese farms. Some recent successes such as Striga-resistant sorghum varieties have shown that better seeds and appropriate farming practices could have a significant impact on Sudan's smallholder agriculture.
75% - Sudan's grain production that comes from sorghum.
