Multiple phenotypic datasets were generated from the SGT project phenotyping hubs.
The CERAAS team (Senegal) acquired aerial spectral and ground-based data during each project year and developed algorithms relating spectral data with ground-based data. CERAAS generated time series of leaf area data from destructive assessments in field experiments. Leaf surface, plant counts, height, and biomass were measured. Six vegetation indices were used to estimate the leaf area index (LAI) in sorghum during the hot off-season in 2018. For additional information and access to the CERAAS datasets, contact Alain Audebert here.
The ICRISAT team (India) generated phenotyping data from 3D laser scanning and carried out parallel sensor assessments from UAV-based systems. In total, ICRISAT completed 100+ flights for monitoring the experiments conducted at the LeasyScan Platform. For additional information and access to the ICRISAT datasets, contact Jana Kholava here.
The CIRAD team (France) phenotyped 96 lines of the Sorghum Reference Collection on the PhenoArch platform and developed a modeling framework for predicting traits and designing ideotypes. GWAS analysis has also been carried out on the PhenoArch experiments. For additional information and access to the CIRAD datasets, contact Gregory Beurier here.
The DDPPC team (USA) phenotyped 740 lines from the SGT panel, including a subset of lines of the Sorghum Reference Collection for early season growth phenotypes at the indoor controlled environment facility at the Danforth Center. For additional information and access to DDPSC controlled environment dataset, contact Nadia Shakoor here.
The IER team (Mali) phenotyped 4BCNAM BC1F4 (412 families) for adaption to southern Mali. For additional information and access to the IER datasets, contact Niaba Teme here.
The EIAR team (Ethiopia) tested the Reference Collection genotypes for adaptation in Ethiopia and seed was increased for phenotyping of 200 selected genotypes, in addition to Ethiopian landraces. Seeds for 1000 Ethiopian landraces were multiplied, and 200 landraces were selected for phenotyping and resequencing.
