Sorghum in Kenya


Sorghum is Africa’s second most important cereal because it is the primary source of daily calories for 300 million sub-Saharan Africans. For Kenyan farmers, sorghum is also one of the few crops that grows well under local conditions because it is naturally drought- and heat-tolerant. Given its importance as a staple crop and ease of farming, plant scientists are now developing sorghum crops with enhanced nutritional content to improve the health of millions of people.
