Millet and sorghum are climate-smart grains for farmers in Chad

28 Jan 2019, FT

Stress-tolerant hybrids of already climate-resilient crops, like millet and sorghum, can improve yields. In Chad, farmers who planted the S35 variety of sorghum have decreased resource inputs by 33 percent and increased yields by 51 percent. Pearl millet and sorghum are also core crops in ICRISAT's framework to end poverty in West and Central Africa.
