Germplasm Enhancement for Resistance to Insects and Improved Efficiency for Sustainable Agriculture Systems
Texas Agricultural Experiment Station
Gary C. Peterson
The overarching goals of this project included: increase yield and promote economic growth, improve nutrition, and improve institutional capacity. Primary research emphasis of this project is the breeding for resistance to insects component of the integrated Texas A&M University sorghum improvement program.
Project objectives are to identify, characterize and utilize the genetic diversity of grain sorghum to develop improved cultivars, germplasm, or parental lines resistant to selected biotic and abiotic stresses.
