@AgribizMamu @murituh @JamesNderui1 @M_Ndura @jhuguz @VictorSiroon My indirect experience with #Shangi started with the #CIP breeding program in the late 1970s in Kenya. I believe Shangi is an “escape”by workers liking its appearance & short dormancy. Dr Haile Kidane was evaluating selections for BW resistance with S. Pheurga genetic background.
