Abstract

Dr. John Yohe, INTSORMIL CRSP Program Director, has announced that the University of Nebraska (UNL) has been selected as the Management Entity for the new Sorghum/Millet and Other Grains CRSP. The award was based on national competition among U. S. universities. This CRSP is funded through a Leader with Associates Cooperative Agreement instrument as opposed to a grant under which INTSORMIL was funded since 1979. The INTSORMIL CRSP, Managed by UNL in partnership with Kansas State University, Purdue University, Texas A&M University, UNL and West Texas A&M University, ends June 30, 2007. The Leader with Associates Cooperative Agreement is effective as of September 30, 2006 and ends September 29, 2011. Estimated cost for the five year cooperative agreement is $9,000,000. Dr. Yohe will be the Program Director of the Sorghum/Millet and Other Grains CRSP. The following excerpts from the proposal submitted to USAID describe the new program.
