Research on the identification of sources of resistance to insect pests of sorghum (i.e.cytoplasmic male sterile lines and wild relatives), and on the improvement and induction of insect pest resistance in sorghum by marker-assisted selection and genetic engineering is summarized. Future prospects are mentioned.
