Feed The Future Releases Two New Sorghum Varieties In Nicaragua, Kimberly Christiansen Jul 2012

Feed The Future Releases Two New Sorghum Varieties In Nicaragua, Kimberly Christiansen

INTSORMIL Impacts and Bulletins

de Tecnologia Agropecuaria (INTA), the Collaborative Research Support Program for Sorghum, Millet and Other Grains (INTSORMIL) has released two new varieties of sorghum in Nicaragua that will be used for forage (plant material eaten by grazing livestock).

These new varieties exhibit the “brown midrib” trait (bmr), which has been used for many years by sorghum producers in the United States. The bmr trait increases the digestibility of sorghum by reducing the amount of lignin, a chemical compound found in the cell walls of plants. The more digestible sorghum is for the livestock that consume it, the higher the quality of ...


The Economic Impact Of The New Insensitive Sorghum Cultivars In The Dairy Market Of Nicaragua, Gabriel Garcia Gomez Jan 2012

The Economic Impact Of The New Insensitive Sorghum Cultivars In The Dairy Market Of Nicaragua, Gabriel Garcia Gomez

INTSORMIL Scientific Publications

This thesis estimates the benefits and returns to consumers, processors, producers and society of the new insensitive sorghum cultivars used for the dairy production in Nicaraguan. Many dairy producers also sell their grain so sorghum production is a multi-product activity.

The breeding project of INTA developed cultivars for simultaneous use in dairy and grain production. Its first release was Pinolero-1 developed during the Nicaraguan civil war. This cultivar was rapidly adopted by farmers after the end of the war in 1990. Subsequently, five more new cultivars have been released. We consider their combined effects.

Through field surveys, we calculated the ...

In Nicaragua, Sorghum grain has been a crops using only for animal feed. Fortunately Scientifics have been researched about its nutritional sorghum grain properties and some of the country that they have been interested to bring the technology about sorghum flour has been Nicaragua because its growths in 3 big areas; in the north, south and west region. Now, that is knew their characteristics and others, so INTA and INTSORMIL are diffusing the technology about sorghum flour to increase the production of sorghum grain, reduce the cost production of bread and some ethnics drinks, to improve the food security and ...


Estimating The Potential Returns To Research And Development From Sorghum Value Added Products In El Salvador And Nicaragua, Jaeljattin R. Jaen Celada Jan 2011

Estimating The Potential Returns To Research And Development From Sorghum Value Added Products In El Salvador And Nicaragua, Jaeljattin R. Jaen Celada

INTSORMIL Scientific Publications

Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench is a drought tolerant crop able to adapt to hot and dry weather. It has excellent chemical and physical properties, which make it a grain of good quality for processing different types of products. This research is an impact assessment study that estimated the potential impacts of new uses of sorghum by using an equilibrium displacement model. The data used was drawn from interviews developed in July 2011.Using total quantity production, prices, prices elasticities and cost shares 8 potential market scenarios were simulated. Results between countries were similar. Thus, the analysis was applied for both ...

Español:

Los ensayos uniformes de sorgo del PCCMCA, son el medio regionalizado para evaluar y seleccionar los mejores sorgos híbridos comerciales y pre-comerciales de las empresas productoras de semillas y programas nacionales de la región. Esta información ha sido la base para que los agricultores reciban las mejores semillas que les aseguren buena rentabilidad del cultivo.

En el 2008 este ensayo fue conformado por un total de 13 híbridos, de los cuales el CBH 8075, CBH 8076, CBH 8077 y CBH 8078, son de la empresa Cristiani Burkard; BORA, MSG 540 y MSG 541 de la empresa Monsanto; ESHG-3 del ...

Validación De Variedades: Fotosensitivas De Sorgo En El Norte De Nicaragua, Sergio A. Cuadra C.

INTSORMIL Presentations

Objetivo General:

Desarrollar variedades de millón en condiciones agro climáticas marginales, que logren garantizar la seguridad alimentaría (humana y animal), de las familias rurales que dependen de este cultivo.

Específicos:

Identificar las variedades de millón con mejor comportamiento agronómico mediante análisis de adaptabilidad y riesgo que permitan realizar recomendaciones con criterios técnicos y cualitativos. Comparar los beneficios económicos entre las diferentes alternativas tecnológicas propuestas y la testigo.

Conclusiones y Recomendaciones

La superioridad productiva de los genotipos ES 790 y 85 SCP 805 sobre la variedad INTA Segovia (testigo) es significativa, teniendo un incremento del 20.3 y 18.8% respectivamente ...
