CULTIVATED PLANTS, PRIMARILY AS FOOD SOURCES – Sorghum and Millets - Irén Léder Figure 1: Sorghum Distribution Sorghum is a tropical grass grown primarily in semi-arid parts of the world. In Africa, a major growing area runs across West Africa south of the Sahara, through Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia. Socioeconomic constraints to the production, distribution and consumption of sorghum, millet and cash crops in North Kordofan, Sudan a farming systems approach: aspects of agricultural production, the household economy, and marketing Series Title: Farming systems research in North Kordofan, Sudan Creator: Reeves, Edward B Frankenberger, Timothy R.

Sorghum is a genus of flowering plants in the grass family Poaceae, which includes about 25 of these species have grown as cereals for human consumption and some in pastures for animals. Seventeen of the 25 species are native to Australia, with the range of some extending to Africa, Asia, Mesoamerica, and certain islands in the Indian and Pacific : Angiosperms.   Millet vs Sorghum Sudangrass - posted in Alfalfa/Hay: Since mother nature seems to enjoy pissing on my parade. We are considering planting the twenty plus acres that we were planning to put in corn to pearl millet. I was wondering how this compares to sorghum sudangrass as far as feed valud and yeild. Will be chopped and ensiled most likely be fed to heifers or to the milk cows if needed.

Hybrid sorghum seed are produced from female plants that are male sterile, that is, the flowers of such plants do not produce viable pollen, and so are not self-pollinating. Male flowers of another cv are grown in rows alongside the female rows, thus providing the pollen for producing the hybrid seed (Reed, ).

WORLD SORGHUM GERMPLASM COLLECTION AND CONSERVATION Melak H. Mengesha* K.E. Prasada Rao** INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Germplasm is the most important raw material for any crop improvement program, and yet the possible extinction of this invaluable resource is a reality the world has to face (10,18).

When the IBPGR listed its priorities for action on crops inboth sorghum and Pennisetum pearl millet were considered of highest global priority; other millets wereFile Size: 1MB.

Both sorghum and the millets are C4, tropical-type plants like maize, and as such are more efficient in utilizing the high solar radiant energy in the tropical latitudes than wheat and its relatives and rice, which are C3 temperate–type plants (Sage and Zhu, ).Cultivated sorghum is a single species (Sorghum bicolor (L.)

Current Situation and Future of Sorghum Germplasm M. Mengesha and K. Prasada Rao* Collection and conservation of sorghum germ-plasm was accelerated about two decades ago because of the danger caused to the landraces by the release of new varieties and hybrids.

For example, "Zera-zera" and "Hegari" landraces of. Some of these aspects, alongwith achievements made by the national programme at NBPGR on exploration and germplasm collection, are reflected in Chapter 14 of this book.

Collecting is limited by the constraints, such as time available, physical capacity and competence of the collectors apart from other local factors. Chapter 3: GERMPLASM EXPLORATION AND COLLECTING. Choice of population.

The success of a germplasm survey, either for studying genetic diversity or for collecting nuts for a germplasm collection, is largely governed by the choice of sample population.

Ideally, it is best to identify and collect as much genetic variability as possible. Introduction. Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is the fifth most important cereal crop, grown mostly in both temperate and tropical regions of Africa, Asia, Europe, and the is a major crop in Africa, with the growing area running across West Africa south of the Sahara through Sudan Cited by: 1.

Prices of locally grown staple foods in Sudan began to decline seasonally with the start of the harvest in October. Prices of imported wheat increased, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Sudan (OCHA) reported in its Situation Report on Thursday.

However, prices of cereals are still at record or near record levels despite the above-average harvest and. T w o-day sorghum germplasm collection mission was undertaken from tribal areas of Melghat region in Maharashtra during kharif and 25 accessions were collected.

Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] backcross populations containing 3 to 50% wild germplasm were evaluated in south central India for grain yield and nine related traits. No individual BC0F2- to BC2F2-derived lines were high transgressive segregates for grain yield. Only % of all BC3F2- or BC4F2-derived lines were transgressive segragates, with 26% higher mean grain yield Cited by: We want to be able to show you accurate inventory and pricing information so you can find the products you are looking for at a location nearby.

Maize is cheaper than sorghum in many informal markets across the SADC region, and there may be good potential for expanding the production of sorghum and millets in view of the price differences. One of the reasons that have been suggested for not increasing the production of sorghum and millets is that the productivity of these crops is low.

Analysis - Sorghum has always been closely associated with the culture of the Sudan.

Sorghum, as a basic element in the nutrition of Sudanese, has a lofty record in the daily life, traditions and. Sorghum is a multipurpose crop cultivated in over countries, but its productivity is constrained by several biotic and abiotic stresses.

Therefore, sorghum improvement programs largely focus on developing high-yielding cultivars with multiple traits including stress resistance, bioenergy and nutritional quality.

Asiri, Vania C.R. Azevedo, Hari C.Sorghum [Sorghum bicolour (L.) 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.
