Sorghum is widely cultivated in West Africa on soils with low phosphorus availability. Large genetic variation for grain yield under low-phosphorus conditions was observed among West Africa sorghum genotypes, but information is lacking on the usefulness of phosphorus-tolerance ratio and measures of phosphorus-acquisition and internal phosphorus-use efficiency as selection criteria for enhancing grain yield under low- phosphorus conditions.
