Agro-morphological characterization of Sorghum in Kakamega 2022

1.0

The Genetic Resources Research Institute holds an expansive pool of sorghum varieties that include landraces, wild materials, and improved cultivars. Assessment of their genetic diversity is crucial as it provides insights into the sorghum’s genetic diversity conserved at the National Genebank of Kenya. These studies inform the conservation efforts and contributes heavily to the selection of desirable traits for improved crop performance. Therefore, morphological characterization of 1,631 accessions was conducted for various Agro-morphological traits using the IBPGR descriptors in an unreplicated trial during the long rains of 2022 at KALRO Kakamega research fields.

Description

Flat field within a research institute. Rainfed plantation

Traits observed

FAO WIEWS code of the institute where the accession is maintained. The codes consist of the 3-letter ISO 3166 country code of the country where the institute is located plus a number (e.g. COL001). The current set of institute codes is available from http://www.fao.org/wiews. For those institutes not yet having an FAO Code, or for those with ‘obsolete’ codes, see ‘Common formatting rules (v)’.

Genus name for taxon. Initial uppercase letter required.

A unique number representing each germplasm.

Number of plants germinated per plot

From emergence till when 50% of the plants have started flowering

Leaf Midrib colour - Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour codes are given in parentheses beside descriptor states

Inflorescence compactness and shape

The height (cm) of main stalk at 50% flowering. Mean of 10 randomly selected plants.

AWNS at maturity
