South Sudan, officially the Republic of South Sudan, is a landlocked country located in East-Central Africa. Some , km. 2. in area, the Republic of South Sudan shares borders with Sudan to the north, Ethiopia to the east, Kenya and Uganda to the southeast, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the southwest, and the Central. Chapter 4 - Food supply systems in Africa Agriculture in transition: Factors affecting food security. The agricultural production and food supply systems of a country depend on many factors including government policy, ecological potential, and the level of technology, inputs .

Secondary school students in Sudan have either studied the history of Kenya and Uganda, or the history of North Sudan since no history book for South Sudan has existed. The book may also be of interest to academics, politicians, historians and college and university students as well civil society groups such as churches, youth and women's groups. Commercial sorghum is the cultivation and commercial exploitation of species of grasses within the genus Sorghum (often S. bicolor).These plants are used for grain, fibre and plants are cultivated in warmer climates worldwide. Commercial Sorghum species are native to tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and Asia.. Other names include durra, Egyptian millet, feterita, Guinea.

  Genetically modified (GM) crops have generated a great deal of controversy. Since commercially introduced to farmers in , the global area cultivated with GM crops has increased fold. The rapid adoption of GM technology has had substantial socio-economic impacts which a vast amount of technical and non-technical literature has addressed in the last two decades. These volumes provide an interdisciplinary account of the nature and significance of ethnic, religious, and national identity in north-east Africa. Case studies from Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Kenya illustrate the way that identities are formed and change over time, and .

The fine-count cotton variety Abdin, derived from the cross (Barac (67) B × BLCABPD8S) F 1 × (Shambat collection × CAHUGARPIH) F 1, was evaluated across ten environments in the Sudan for two seasons (/04 and /05).Abdin gave lint yield advantage over Shambat-B of 61%, and had a ginning out-turn percentage of compared to for Shambat-B.

Cotton (Gossypium spp.), a leading natural fiber, is a major cash crop in the world and is grown commercially in more than 50 countries. China, India, USA, Pakistan and Uzbekistan are the five. There is substantial ethnic, cultural and linguistic diversity among the people living in east Africa, Sudan and the Nile Valley.

The region around the Nile Valley has a long history of succession of different groups, coupled with demographic and migration events, potentially leading to genetic structure among humans in the region.

A genetic study of Uganda Mt-DNA Abstract The Great Lakes lie within a region of East Africa with very high human genetic diversity, home of many ethno-linguistic groups usually assumed to be the product of a small number of major dispersals. The sorghum improvement program at Purdue University is very comprehensive encompassing the genetic improvement and management of several essential traits of the crop.

We conduct interdisciplinary research in the improvement of sorghum for biotic (diseases and parasitic weeds) and abiotic (drought and cold tolerance), as well as nutritional quality and biofuel efficiency. Uganda is the only East African country to witness a consistent decline in cotton production.
