This will be a joint effort between ARS, who has genetic materials and expertise to hybridize sorghum with shattercane and/or Johnsongrass, and the University of Nebraska, who has facilities and expertise to evaluate such hybridizations for fitness and weediness. The University of Nebraska will gather data on fitness parameters in the field and greenhouse. Both partners will collaborate in designing the experiments and interpreting the results.
