Genetic improvement of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] for resistance to Striga hermonthica (Del.) Benth. and to water deficit by induced mutagenesis
Conference Paper

Création de lignées mutantes de sorgho [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] pour la résistance à Striga hermonthica (Del.) Benth. dans un contexte de changement climatique par mutation induite
Research
Sorghum mutation breeding for Striga hermonthica resistance and tolerance to water deficit
Article
Full-text available
We identified sorghum mutant lines resistant to Striga hermonthica. The resistance was induced by gamma rays irradiation
Article
Full-text available
This study aimed at creating genetic variability by induced mutagenesis in farmers' preferred sorghum variety (ICSV1049) to breed mutant lines for water deficit tolerance. Sorghum seeds were irradiated by gamma rays and sown as one panicle-to-one progeny method. Putative lines M5 (143) and parent were screened under water deficit stress. Data analy...

Striga species affect the potential productivity of cereals in sub-saharian Africa due to the lack of durable Striga-resistance in host crops. This study aimed at inducing new source of resistance in sorghum using gamma irradiation. Dry seeds of three Sorghum varieties; Grinkan, ICV1049 and Sariaso14 were gamma-irradiated with 200 Gy, 300 Gy, 400 G...

Infestation by the parasitic plant Striga hermonthica is a severe threat to food security in sub‐Saharan Africa, impacting the production of the major staple crops pearl millet and sorghum, equating to 7–10 billion $ losses. Using Striga seed dependency on host‐released germination stimulants, we have developed and validated a method for addressing...
