Innovating science to build the crops of the future...

The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research in Sorghum and Millet is a consortium of cutting-edge research aimed at improving the adaptation and resilience of sorghum and pearl millet to the semi-arid climates of East and West Africa. It links U.S. and international universities and research organizations in a collaborative effort to build human and institutional capacity in Ethiopia, Niger and Senegal through a grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The Lab was established in July 2013 at Kansas State University to contribute technologies and knowledge towards the adaptation, resilience, and improved profitability of sorghum- and millet-based production systems and value chains in order to make sorghum and pearl millet the crops of the future.
