Description

Pennisetum glaucum.png
  • Pennisetum glaucum is widely used small-grained C4 panicoid crop grown for forage, grain and stover with excellent nutrient composition in the arid and semi-arid regions of Asia and Africa. It is also considered a potential biofuel grain feedstock which is grown in areas frequented with one or more abiotic stresses. The superior drought and heat tolerance make it an model crop for functional genomic studies to understand the molecular basis of abiotic stress tolerance and adaptation[1] [2].
