This project sought to identify sorghum and pearl millet genotypes which are superior in nutrient efficiency.
1. Identify sorghum and pearl millet genotypes which are superior in nutrient use efficiency (primarily nitrogen). 2. Determine the physiological and morphological mechanisms which allow genotypes to be nutrient use efficient. 3. Quantify the effects of environment on genetic response at different soil fertilities (primarily nitrogen). 4. Determine optimum nitrogen and phosphorus management practices for arid and semi-arid environments. 5. Provide long and short term training experiences for students and scientists of collaborating instilutions, as well as certain technical expertise for collaborativc efforts related to overall INTSORMIL objectives.
