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.
