Project Details

An integrated framework for exploring the water saving mechanism in pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.]: An important cereal crop of semi-arid tropics

Duration: 23/Aug/2018 - 22/Aug/2021

Locations: Asia

Project contact: Dr P Sudhakar Reddy (

Donor: Government department -national- state or local,Science & Engineering Research Board- Government of India-India

CGIAR Research Program: GLDC

Screening of genotypes for better water use efficiency and identifying key genetic factor(s) involved in improved water use efficiency through modern genomic and biotechnological approaches, would increase pearl millet productivity in marginal lands. Thereby, improving livelihood of marginal farmers in arid and semi-arid tropics of India.
