Drought is a major abiotic stress factor limiting crop production. Identification of genetic factors involved in plant responses to drought stress will provide a solid foundation to improve drought resistance. Sorghum is well adapted to hot dry environments and regarded as a model for studying drought resistance among the grasses. Significant progress in genome mapping of this crop has also been made. In sorghum, rapid premature leaf death generally occurs when water is limited during the grain… Expand
Breeding for Resistance to Drought: A Case in Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.)Moench)
Drought tolerance in sorghum was estimated in several ways: evaluation of grain yield under drought, the stability of yield, rate and duration of grain fill, seed weight, stay green and associatedExpand
Evaluation of bio-physiological and yield responses of stay green QTL introgression sorghum lines to post-flowering drought stress
TLDR
Three Stg QTL introgression lines showed better tolerance to drought than their recurrent parents, as reflected by yield and maintenance of green leaf area, and these improved lines bear potential for use as alternatives in breeding programmes and for possible release in parts of the country where post-flowering drought stress is frequent.

Mapping QTLs and Identification of Genes Associated with Drought Resistance in Sorghum.
TLDR
The loci, quantitative trait loci (QTLs), or genes that have been identified for traits involved in drought avoidance (water-use efficiency, cuticular wax synthesis, trichome development and morphology, root system architecture) and drought tolerance (compatible solutes, pre- and post-flowering drought tolerance) are described.

Fine Mapping of Shoot Fly Resistance and Stay-Green QTLS on Sorghum Chromosome SBI-10
TLDR
To develop an introgression-line cross-based fine-mapping population for morphological components of shoot fly resistance and for the stay-green mechanism of terminal drought tolerance previously mapped to sorghum chromosome SBI-10L, the following objectives were proposed. Expand
Genetic Manipulation of Root System Architecture to Improve Drought Adaptation in Sorghum
Drought is one of the most important abiotic stresses and severely affects global agricultural production. Root system architecture (RSA) is the key determinant of water acquisition under moistureExpand
Evaluation and association mapping of agronomic traits for drought tolerance in sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]
TLDR
The results of this study can serve as initial effort for the association mapping studies in sorghum particularly in Ethiopia as the associated SSR markers are potential candidates for marker-assisted selection to improve drought tolerance in Sorghum. Expand
Agro-morphological characterization of diverse sorghum lines for pre-and post-flowering drought tolerance
TLDR
Evaluating sorghum breeding lines for their tolerance to field drought stress imposed at the pre-flowering and post-anthesis developmental stages in 2015 and 2016 growing seasons finds staygreen lines with minimal reductions in grain yield are identified to ensure that grain yield is not over sacrificed by the ability of the crop to staygreen under terminal drought conditions.

Mapping QTLs Linked to Physio-Morphological and Plant Production Traits under Drought Stress in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) in the Target Environment
TLDR
Recombinant inbred rice lines subjected to severe drought stress during reproductive phase showed significant variation in physio-morphological and plant production traits under stress, indicating the pleiotropic effects of root trait QTLs on rice performance under stress. Expand

Genetic analysis of post-flowering drought tolerance and components of grain development in Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench
TLDR
Quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis identified 13 regions of the genome associated with one or more measures of post-flowering drought tolerance and many loci that were associated with both rate and duration of grain development. Expand
Quantitative trait loci influencing drought tolerance in grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench)
TLDR
The identification of QTLs and markers for pre-flowering drought tolerance and lodging tolerance will help plant breeders in manipulating and pyramiding those traits along with stay green to improve drought tolerance in sorghum. Expand
Mapping of post-flowering drought resistance traits in grain sorghum: association between QTLs influencing premature senescence and maturity
TLDR
The molecular genetic analysis of the QTLs influencing stay-green and maturity, together with the association between these two inversely related traits, provides a basis for further study of the underlying physiological mechanisms and demonstrates the possibility of improving drought resistance in plants by pyramiding the favorableQTLs.

Molecular mapping of QTLs conferring stay-green in grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench).
TLDR
High-resolution mapping and cloning of the consistent stay-green QTLs may help to develop drought-resistant hybrids and to understand the mechanism of drought-induced senescence in plants. Expand

TLDR
Re-evaluated the Recombinant Inbred Line (RIL)-mapping population from the cross B35 x Tx7000 in two locations over 2 years and concluded that Stg2 is the most important QTL controlling stay green, explaining the maximum amount of phenotypic variation. Expand

In sorghum, recent emphasis on field screening under severe drought stress has led to significant developments in the understanding of drought tolerance, and two distinct types of stress responses have been identified. Expand
Identification of Quantitative Trait Loci Associated with Pre‐Flowering Drought Tolerance in Sorghum
TLDR
Six regions of the genome were found to be specifically associated with pre-flowering drought tolerance and eight additional regions were more generally associated with yield or yield components under fully irrigated conditions. Expand
Evaluation of near-isogenic sorghum lines contrasting for QTL markers associated with drought tolerance
TLDR
Near-isogenic lines (NILs) were developed and used to test the phenotypic effects of three different genomic regions associated with various measures of agronomic performance in drought and/or non-drought environments and indicated differences in agronomics performance may be influenced by a drought tolerance mechanism that conditions plant water status and the expression of staygreen.

TLDR
Visual rating of green leaf retention was highly correlated with measured GLAM, although this procedure is constrained by an inability to distinguish among the functional mechanisms determining the phenotype. Expand

The results indicate that visual stay green ratings were a reliable indicator of leaf senescence and should be useful to sorghum breeders in evaluating progeny when breeding for drought tolerance. Expand
