The principal objectives of TAM-222 were to identify and develop disease resistant and drought resistant sorghum germplasm in genetically diverse backgrounds for use by host country and U.S. scientists, to identify, evaluate, and utilize new elite exotic germplasm, and to collaborate with host country scientists in all aspects of their crop improvement programs. The disease and drought resistance breeding program continued to develop and evaluate new
germplasm for use in the U.S. and host countries.
Forty-eight new fully converted exotic lines and 70 partially converted lines from the cooperative TAMU-TAES/USDA-ARS Sorghum Conversion Program were identified for release.
