Sorghum Pure Breeding Project

Tropical Institute of Development innovations (TRIDI), has embraced innovative breeding technologies for sorghum varieties, to produce sorghum, tolerant to drought and resistant to Striga weed.

The crops are being developed so as to realize which varieties are capable of surviving and producing many grains for consumption or trading, in the shortest cultivation time, when exposed to the harsh conditions of dry weather.

TRIDI, a research, extension and training based institution, anticipates that using these innovative breeding tools, this research will give off plant varieties that are resistant, give off high yield and can be grown in the shortest time possible.
