Improving Post-rainy Sorghum Varieties to Meet the Growing Grain and Fodder Demand in India - Phase 2
Duration: 01/Aug/2013 - 31/Jul/2017
Locations: Asia / India

The knowledge of key mechanisms underlying the stay-green phenotype expression in sorghum justifies the need to progress towards the identification of genome regions involved in these key traits. This project is grounded in the achievements of the first phase and intends to complete the development of materials that would eventually be tested for release. This, together with a better molecular marker system/platform/assay offering more precision, is essential to achieve a higher efficiency during the breeding process.
