This article belongs to the Virtual Special Issue "Improving Breeding Methods to Enhance Productivity of Sorghum"
Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) is an important cereal crop grown in hot, drought prone environments around the world to produce grain, forage and industrial products. Sorghum is grown as staple inbred crop for smallholder farmers in Africa and Asia, and as a hybrid crop in commercial agriculture. Possessing excellent abiotic and biotic stress tolerance, sorghum is a climate-smart crop and the genetic improvement of is essential to fully developing it potential.
In this edition dedicated to sorghum improvement, we wish to gather expertise from elite sorghum research groups to publish 10–15 articles addressing important aspects of sorghum crop improvement. The topics/subjects of emphasis include:
For application-based studies, field testing with a minimum of four environments and appropriate genotypes are necessary. Methodology and conceptual manuscripts will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
We desire research in sorghum crop improvement that is novel and pertinent to the goal of improving the breeding process to create productive new germplasm. The term for article submission is set for 15 August 2023. All publications will be open access and available online. Publication fees will be fully waived for papers submitted to this special issue.
We are looking forward to receiving your submissions!
