Sorghum – MARS project

Improve sorghum productivity in semi-arid environments of Mali through integrated MARS (G4008.48)

This project aims to demonstrate the value of marker-assisted recurrent selection (MARS) for sorghum breeding through a private–public partnership involving the local Mali national programme – L’Institut d’économie rurale (IER), Agropolis–CIRAD and Syngenta.

The value of MARS has been well demonstrated in maize in private company programmes, and should be readily applicable to sorghum.
