Projects

Breeding for dual purpose sorghum in Sudan-Project II: Simultaneous improvement for forage, grain an

This research project is aiming at concurrent investigation of stover, grain and stem-juice attributes in different sorghum genotypes with the objective of identifying materials showing the best compromise between multi-economic traits of sorghum. The project started in 2010 and is ongoing. One M.Sc. student affiliated to Sudan Academy of Science – Agricultural Council is doing his study in the project.

Breeding for dual purpose sorghum in Sudan :Project I : Developing of dual fodder/grain sorghum geno

The objectives of this project were to develop dual purpose (grain/fodder) sorghum genotypes having the potential of combining (to the maximum possible) improved feed and food attributes. The project was launched in Sudan (Khartoum State) in 2009/2010 and is ongoing. One PhD student (Sudan Academy of Science – Agricultural Council) is doing his study in the project.

Develpment of Local x Local Forage Sorghum Hybrid

The objectives of this project (2001 through 2010 - Sudan) were to develop forage sorghum hybrids using local genetic stocks. Exotic females were first attempted but the choice for developing local x local hybrids was thought crucial in resolving problems pertaining to adaptability. Local females were therefore developed. A3 cytoplasm was transferred to the genetic background of some lines selected from the traditional Abu Sabin cultivar. The male parents were derived from ‘Garawi’ the mother population of what is today known as Sudangrass. The project succeeded in developing and officially releasing the first Sudan hybrid forage sorghum under the name ‘Hagin Garawi 1’ in March 2010. The project was funded by the national research program (ARC/SUDAN).

Improvement of local stocks of forage sorghums

The objectives of this project (2000 – 2009 - Sudan) were to develop improved versions of local stocks of forage sorghums. Individual plant selection was practiced within local populations of Sudan grass, Abu Sabin and Ankolib (Sweet sorghum) followed by screening and testing of elite materials across test environments. The project succeeded in developing and officially releasing improved cultivars excelling the parental population in forage yield and some quality traits. The project was funded by the national research program (ARC/SUDAN).
