Sorghum breeder from Texas visited UFS

The Plant Pathology Division of the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of the Free State (UFS) was recently visited by Prof Gary Peterson, a sorghum breeder from Texas A&M University. Prof Peterson is also Southern African regional coordinator for the International Sorghum and Millets Collaborative Research Support Program (INTSORMIL). The aim of his visit was to investigate the possibility of adding to the compliment of INTSORMIL-supported students at the UFS by funding a sorghum breeder at PhD level at the Centre for Plant Health Management in the Department of Plant Sciences.
