September 10, 2013 at the Regional Research and Training Center of Mykolayiv NAU Field Day on the technology of cultivation of sorghum was held.
The event was attended by the regional administration, representatives of the leading companies in the production and sale of seeds of sorghum from the USA, France, India, Russia, Hungary, Moldova, as well as national sorghum breeding centers and producers from 10 regions of Ukraine and Crimea.
Participants had the opportunity to compare the available varieties and hybrids with modern achievements. At the demonstration fields 180 undergraduate and graduate students of the University had their practical tasks and experiments with sorghum. Each of the varieties was assigned to a student who was leading it from sowing to harvesting.
According to Ukrainian and foreign experts, a collection of nearly 100 varieties and hybrids of sorghum (broomcorn, sugar sorghum, sudanese sorghum) is the best in Ukraine.
Mykolayiv NAU has an industry field of sorghum besides the research fields. After visiting the demonstration field, participants took part in the Round table discussion "Sorghum is the culture of great opportunities". Representatives of foreign companies, breeders and all participants expressed a unanimous desire to develop and improve international cooperation. It was planned to transform the Demonstration fields into the Research and Production training ground next year, where they are going to practice sophisticated technology of cultivation, protection and harvesting vegetables and sorghum.
