Overview

This project aims to develop genotypes of Brachiaria with higher tolerance to waterlogging and more productivity than the commercial cultivars for livestock systems in humid zones, which are suffering the uncharacteristic periods of waterlogging due to extreme weather events associated with climate change in Latin America and the Caribbean. We also aim to identify waterlogging tolerant Brachiaria genotypes using the farmer participatory research approach.
