  6. Sorghum: The Crop Trust supported the National Plant Genetic Resource Centre (NPGRC) to characterize and evaluate 200 sorghum accessions for aluminum toxicity and drought tolerance with the aim of providing data and information on the genetic and agronomic value of sorghum available at the National Genebank of Tanzania and making this available to breeders to develop multiple stress tolerant varieties for the benefit of farmers in Tanzania and the region.
  7. Sorghum: The Crop Trust supported the National Plant Genetic Resource Centre (NPGRC) to regenerate and safety duplicate 172 sorghum accessions with the objective of rescuing threatened diversity and enhancing use of the crops. 105 accessions are safety duplicated in the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Area (ICRISAT).
