1 Dual-purpose and forage hybrids in sorghum                                                                        (Postrainy season adapted dual-purpose and forage sorghums for higher yield and quality for improving livestock productivity and farmers ….) DSR-Hyderabad, MPKV-Rahuri and VNMKV-Parbhani in Maharashtra; UAS-Dharwad in Karnataka and ILRI-Hyderabad
2 Evaluation of farmers’ selection in specific breeding population targeting the northern Sudan Savannah, that were made in collaboration with UACT and IER-Cinzana. Mr Aly Boubacar Traore, of IER Cinzana would be the perosn carrying out this work, as a follow-up to hies PhD research.
3 Establishing a marker test that could be conducted at CERAAS, or at K-Biosciences to test hybrid seed samples for outcrosses with wild sorghum.                                      (Testing sorghum hybrid lots for genetic purity..) CERAAS, possibly with inputs from Dr. B. Guitton
