Research topic:

"Sorghum genotypes capability in dealing with various levels of salinity and drought"

Research foci:

  • Understanding the response of sorghum to salinity and drought stress by determining morphological and physiological characteristics of different genotypes that are related to salinty and drought stress
  • Evaluating the performance of selected sorghum genotypes on soils along a salinity gradient in drought prone areas
  • Linking the experiment with ecophysiological and crop modelling to better capture, explain and quantify the impact of salinity and drought on sorghum growth and yield
