Inter-population improvement involves simultaneous improvement of two heterotic populations with a focus on their combining ability. In inter-population improvement methods, also known as reciprocal recurrent selection, there are two important alternatives, based on the evaluation of half-sib or full-sib progenies developed by using the other Cited by: 2.

(CMS) facilitated the application of recurrent selection procedures (population improvement) and hybrid cultivar development methods, respectively, in sorghum improvement programs.

Sorghum breeders have been successful in exploiting available vast genetic variability in sorghum by direct selection among landraces and/or by the use of.

Genetic and Genomic Resources For Cereals Improvement is the first book to bring together the latest available genetic resources and genomics to facilitate the identification of specific germplasm, trait mapping, and allele mining that are needed to more effectively.

Among these countries, the top 10 sorghum producers are the United States, AbstrAct Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is a drought-resilient crop, grown extensively in semiarid tropics of the. Accelerating crop improvement in sorghum, a staple food for people in semiarid regions across the developing world, is key to ensuring global food security in the context of climate change.

To facilitate gene discovery and molecular breeding in sorghum, we have characterized ∼, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in worldwide Cited by: 1.

Introduction. Sorghum, Sorghum bicolor (L.) (Moench), is a staple food for millions of the poorest and most food insecure people in the semiarid tropics (SAT) of Africa and Asia. Being a C4 species with higher photosynthetic ability and greater nitrogen and water use efficiency, sorghum is genetically suited to hot and dry agroecologies, where it is difficult to grow other food : P S Reddy, B V S Reddy.

Sorghum Breeding in ICRISAT • Sorghum improvement started in • Breeding concepts and objectives and the mode of research involving partners have undergone several changes since the initiation of sorghum improvement at ICRISAT and the evolution can be grouped into six major phases- 1.

Common names of sorghum include wild grain, grain sorghum, forage sorghum, sweet sorghum, broom millet, broomcorn, milo, jowar, kafir corn, guinea corn and cholam, among many others (USDA ARS ; PlantNet).

The designation of a functional model grass species and the subsequent development of a community resource for the genetic dissection of carbon partitioning, biomass composition, and other yield-related bioenergy traits is needed to increase collaboration and accelerate bioenergy improvement.

Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench has emerged as one of Cited by:   Introduction. Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) is a major staple crop that is adapted to multiple agroclimatic zones of the world (Smith and Frederiksen ).In smallholder production systems of Africa, sorghum is used as food, forage, and building material, and cultivated under constraints such as drought, insects, weeds, and bird predation (National Research Council ; Cited by: 4.

In terms of tonnage, sorghum is Africa’s second most important cereal. The continent produces about 20 million tonnes of sorghum per annum, about one-third of the world crop. However, these figures do not do justice to the importance of sorghum in Africa.

Sorghum May Inhibit Cancer Tumor Growth Compounds in sorghum called 3-Deoxyanthoxyanins (3-DXA) are present in darker-colored sorgums, and to a lesser extent in white sorghum.

The sorghum improvement program at Purdue University is very comprehensive encompassing the genetic improvement and management of several essential traits of the crop.

We conduct interdisciplinary research in the improvement of sorghum for biotic (diseases and parasitic weeds) and abiotic (drought and cold tolerance), as well as nutritional quality and biofuel efficiency.

Each leaf sheath originates at its own node on the plant stalk. The sheath sur-rounds and strengthens the stalk (culm). The flagFile Size: KB.

In photoperiod sensitive sorghum hybrids, development is focused on the pollinator parent and uses the Ma5/Ma6 breeding approaches described by Rooney and Aydin ().For all types of improvement (grain, forage or energy), materials from the Sorghum Conversion Program and breeding materials from other TAES sorghum programs are evaluated.

Moench] is an indigenous crop to Africa, and though commercial needs and uses may change over time, sorghum will remain a basic staple food for many rural communities.

The latter is especially true in the more drought prone areas of South Africa where this hardy crop provides better household food security than Size: KB.The main focus of this thorough new book is the potential for crop improvement through new and traditional methods, with the book’s main chapters covering the following crops: sorghum, pearl millet, finger millet, foxtail milet, proso millet, little millet, barnyard millet, kodo millet, tef and fonio.
