Open Pollinated, White Grained
MACIA is a white grained, open pollinated variety from ICRISAT. It is a medium maturity variety with good disease tolerance and can be grown throughout the country, but particularly in areas where maize is a high risk crop.
Sorghum has a high drought tolerance and is likely to produce a crop even in years of less than average rainfall. MACIA produces very uniform robust plants with bold compact heads. The plants are shorter than SV2.
High yielding variety
Segaolane is a very reliable OPV white sorghum that has been produced in Botswana for many years. This tough, high yielding variety has good resistance to witchweed parasites.
