Project Title

Sorghum for grain use in Hesse: Establishment of new locally adapted varieties

Project description

To adapt to climate change and increase biodiversity, it is necessary to establish new, robust crops in local agriculture. Sorghum is a drought-tolerant, versatile crop with numerous agro-ecological advantages, which can also represent a risk hedge for Hessian farmers during drought events. The aim of the project is therefore to develop stress-tolerant and locally adapted grain sorghum varieties. These varieties will contribute to increasing biodiversity in agriculture and will be used as represent an important innovation for Hesse, both as high-quality animal feed and as gluten-free food.
