Characterization of Sorghum bicolor genotypes under varying water regimes
Agriculture is the largest consumer of fresh water, accounting for 70% of use globally. The availability of water is expected to decrease in future climate models. It is imperative to develop crop varieties with improved performance under targeted limited water environments. One approach to address this aim is capitalizing on inherent variability for drought tolerance traits in crops. Depending on the nature of water stress and other environmental factors, specific root morphology, shoot morphology, and the harvest index are selectable traits that can distinguish performance of different genotypes ...
