Agro-morphological characterization of sorghum accessions in Kibos 2022

1.0

Sorghum is an important dryland crop and plays a great role in improving food security in many regions in sub-Saharan Africa. The Genetic Resources Research Institute, Kenya holds a large sorghum diversity, including the duplicate collection of African sorghum genetic resources. Agro-morphological characterization was conducted for a total of 193 sorghum accessions in 2022. The experiment was conducted in Kibos, Kisumu County, Kenya. It was laid out in a 16 x 11 alpha lattice deign replicated 3 times. Characterization was conducted using IBPGR descriptors.

Description

Rainfed agricultural research field

Traits observed

Number of plants per plot that have emerged and survived after planting

Proportion of seedlings after emergence in relation to the number of seedlings plated

The colour of the vein in the leaf that extends from the base of the leaf to its tip.

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

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

Overall agronomic desirability of the accession as observed visually

From 10 randomly selected plants. Mian stem is considered as one

At maturity, RHS colour codes are given in parentheses beside the descriptor states

Amount of grain covered by glumes. At maturity see figure 3

From base of inflorescence (head) to tip. Mean of five randomly chosen plants

In natural position at the widest part. mean of five randomly selected plants

RHS colour codes are given in parentheses beside the descriptor states

at 12% moisture content

Average of 5 panicles in the plot
