Researchers set up $6.2M collaboration to develop sorghum that better captures carbon

September 16, 2021 |

In Missouri, researchers at the Salk Institute’s Harnessing Plants Initiative (HPI) have established a five-year, $6.2 million collaboration the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center to identify and develop sorghum plants that can better capture and store atmospheric carbon.The work, which will first involve gaining a better understanding of the genetics of sorghum, fits into the broader goal of HPI to address climate change by optimizing the ability of crop plants to remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it deep in the ground for long periods.
