The National Research Foundation launched its Science for Society Lecture Series in 2012 in an effort to help bridge the divide that exists between science and community issues and to help society relate to how science, research and technology positively impact on our day-to-day lives and on future generations. Through this lecture series, the organisation seeks to showcase the work of NRF-funded researchers and other beneficiaries of research funding in general, addressing real challenges that are facing South Africa today.

Sorghum for Food and Nutrition Security in Southern Africa
Sorghum is the 5th most important grain crop after wheat, maize, rice and barley. It is a staple food for about 500 million people in more than 30 countries and has significant nutritional qualities. Sorghum is an especially important crop in the arid, sub-tropical and tropical parts of Africa on account of its hardiness, in particular its low water requirement in comparison to maize and its relative drought-resistance.
