- Verification of Striga hermonthica resistance on Sorghum mutant lines on green house and laboratory. Sorghum mutants resistant to Striga were found and ongoing work is Striga resistance mechanisms studies with agar gel and rhizotron.
We identified sorghum mutant lines resistant to Striga hermonthica. The resistance was induced by gamma rays irradiation
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...
Finding of water deficit tolerance mutants of Sorghum
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...
